Heartland Credit Union
What did you love about YA?
I loved the real-world experience that my internship gave me. It was helpful to see what working in finance would actually be like. I also liked learning about how to do transactions and how to help members with their concerns and questions. It was an overall rewarding experience!
How did YA influence your plans after high school?
Going into my internship I was planning on majoring in accounting in college but after working at Heartland for a couple of months I decided I wanted to continue into the finance world. I will now be majoring finance & risk management insurance because of what I learned working.
What do you want others to know about YA?
Deciding to do an internship in a job field you think you might be interested in is the best decision you can make. Being able to see what it would actually be like post-graduation gives you a better understanding of whether or not you would enjoy it. I believe everyone should take advantage of the youth internship program!
