Junior Noah Shertzer is a Management major who spent the Summer in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania at Capital Blue Cross working as their official Community Relations Intern.

During his time with the company, Noah worked planning events, organizing sponsorships and assisting in community outreach. “I did a lot of outreach to different organizations and non-profits, most of which are customers or potential customers of Capital BlueCross,” he said.

Throughout his time with the department, he also learned the importance of allocating work. With a wide variety of tasks in many different areas, Noah managed to network with a range companies. I made a long-standing connection with a few non-profits. I have connected and befriended people from Pennsylvania Food-bank and United Way. I really wanted to do this because from the start, I loved what they do and what they stand for so I wanted to know them for volunteer opportunities and for future endeavors,” he said.

In addition to his roles in events and outreach, Noah gained valuable experience in managing budgets and role adaptation. He hopes to possibly pursue a graduate degree or work in a sales sector one day, and he found the experience to be informing and valuable to his future career endeavors.
