We value our interns as offer their fresh perspective and talents, and we work hard to create valuable programs for them so they gain real-work, hands-on experience for their future careers (and we hope they will consider us when they graduate!). We offer internships on an as-needed basis as opportunities arise at our campuses and corporate office in various departments. If you are interested in what opportunities we may have at this time or have questions, please email our team at Internship@CountryMeadows.com.
We offered a paid internship opportunity during summer 2018 with our Employment Specialist team at several Country Meadows campuses and our sister, non-profit company, Ecumenical Retirement Community. Candidates were expected to have an outgoing personality, superior communication skills and strong customer service orientation.
We are proud of each of our interns and have shared a little bit about them below. Thank you for sharing your talents and skills with us!
Kira is attending Shippensburg University majoring in Management with a concentration in Human Resource Management. She became interested in an internship at Country Meadows because her mother currently works for a retirement community and loves it. During her time with us, she would like to focus on learning the different aspects of Human Resources, specifically the hiring process.
Lauren is currently studying Business Administration at Bloomsburg University. Her passion for Human Resources came after taking a few classes and seeing how this department allows you to be a bigger part of an organization as a whole. She chose Country Meadows because she has a huge heart for helping the senior community! Knowing that the people that she would help to hire would, in turn, help our seniors made her excited for this opportunity.
Maddison started as a Personal Care Associate at our Hershey campus but when it was time to do her internship for Penn State Harrisburg she applied to be a Human Resources intern here with us too! She is currently getting her masters degree in Healthcare Administration. Maddison loves the senior population and hopes to continue her education in long term care and work as an administrator.
Erin is currently attending Fairfield University and studying Management. Her godmother is a co-worker at Country Meadows and she liked the idea of working in the family-oriented culture and also appreciates that employees can continue to grow within the company. She is excited to learn more about Human Resouces and the interview and hiring process.
