What a technology internship in Haven Life really is



Some things never change. Summer turns to autumn. The leaves change their colors. And Haven Life's insurance and technology interns leave our offices and return to the higher education institutions, where they will apply the invaluable lessons and experiences they have gained in recent months.

But before going through the (virtual) doors for good, we requested their thoughts and their sincere feedback about their summer as technical interns, all to teach us what we can do better and what makes working at the online insurance agency Haven Life so special. (To get a pretty amazing recipe for homemade honey lemon tea.) This is what they told us. And if this sounds fun and exciting to you ̵

Favorite Value on Haven Life?

“We Matter to Each Other. “I like this value because I feel it sums up my experience and the vibe I got throughout my internship. Everyone I've talked to and worked with at Haven Life is super accommodating, reasonable and seemed to really care about me.

Best advice you received?

I do not remember the actual quote, but Zack Shinkar – Developer, my mentor, told me that fighting is part of the process. It was a big lesson for me. As a former Haven intern himself, he shared that I should reach out to him or another member of the team if I feel stuck, which was good advice because it made me feel comfortable leaning against him and others on the team for support when I encountered problems.

If you want your voice to sound deeper on the phone, lie on your back while talking. I do not know why this works, but it just does.

What is your favorite project you worked on?

Build workflow functions for one of our new internal tools. I learned the valuable skills in large-scale system design and development, as well as how to improve system security, durability and maintenance. I learned so much and liked the project.

Often when you make recipes you only need a few slices of lemon. So take the remaining lemon slices, marinate them in sugar overnight in the fridge and then use them in the morning for homemade honey lemon tea. It's delicious!

Separate thoughts?

During my internship at Haven Life, I learned not only how to develop systems, but also what it is like to work at a technology company. Haven Life is filled with warmth and joy, which has been a very appreciated and memorable experience in my life.

Why did you want to practice in Haven Life? [19659005] I wanted to work for an organization that made a difference, especially considering everything that happened with COVID-19. Haven Life not only takes care of its customers, which facilitates life insurance but also its employees. That was important to me.

When you get ready to travel, make a list of items you want to take with you (passport, wallet, phone, keys) and check it one last time before you go. It will save a panic moment on the way to the airport!

Separating thoughts?

Never be afraid to ask questions (the more questions the better!) And always be ready to learn new things – the people around you have a lot to learn.

Yaoyang Liu, Cornell Tech, Haven DTC Team Intern

Favorite value of Haven Life?

"Obsessive learning and looking for better ways"! From day one, I have been amazed at how many new things I have learned here at Haven Life and how much the team and my mentor are driving me to learn. Everyone I work with is constantly trying new techniques and techniques and inspiring each other to optimize and grow. It has been so fun and rewarding to be a part of.

Meeting you are looking forward to?

Every day our team has what we call a "Stand Down" meeting. It gathers everyone on the team at the end of the day to decompress, chat and have fun. I look forward to it every day!

Any tips for future interns?
