SHIFT: Day Job
Your Talent. Our Vision. At Anthem, Inc., it’s a powerful combination, and the foundation upon which we’re creating greater access to 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.
This is an exceptional opportunity to do innovative work that means more to you and those we serve at one of America's leading health care companies and a Fortune Top 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!
