VIEW JOBS 3/12/2020 12:00:00 AM 2020-06-10T00:00 Your Talent. Our Vision. At Anthem, Inc., it's a powerful combination, and the foundation upon which we're creating greater care for our members, greater value for our customers, and greater health for our communities. Join us and together we will drive the future of health care. As an Anthem Sales Intern you will have the exceptional opportunity to do innovative work at a Fortune 50 company! At Anthem, selling isn't uncomfortable. Our business-to-business selling model helps you develop relationships with business partners and customers. Our sales positions definitely aren't desk jobs - in fact, no two days are alike. One day you may visit with a client to discuss the success of their program, and later that day you may meet with your internal team to create a new, innovative health care solution that will bring more value to your customer. On another day, you may present our benefits to new customers, and that night, attend a social event with a business partner. Sales at Anthem is all about developing personal relationships to better understand the health care needs of our customers, and you can't really do that sitting behind a desk. So if you're looking to start your career, and not just a "summer job", at a company that cares about both you and our members, then a sales internship at Anthem, Inc., one of America's leading health benefits companies, may be the perfect opportunity for you! This job is for participants of an approved internship program for undergraduate college students. Specific work assignments will vary by department. Assignments must meet the definition of meaningful work. Must be part of an approved academic course of study, and that course of study must be applicable to the company's operations or the support of those operations. Skills and ability requirements vary based on assignment. Our sales interns will experience life in a professional sales office and will learn the sales and retention process beginning with product design, underwriting and pricing for appropriate risk, all the way through customer service and claims payment. You will interact with Account Executives, Account Managers and sales support departments driving important project work - including competitive analysis, work flow process improvement, and customer meetings. While the majority of your time will be dedicated to sales related activities, projects important to other state plan departments will give you a full understanding of the world class products and services Anthem delivers to its customers and members. Anthem, Inc. is ranked as one of the World's Most Admired Companies in Health Care: Insurance and Managed Care by Fortune magazine, and is a 2018 DiversityInc magazine Top 50 Company for Diversity.
