During my time as an Executive Assistant with Employee Plans Services, I learned the foundations for success in a professional office setting. I began as an inexperienced college student. I left with the ability to balance multiple project deadlines and tasks. I overcame my fear of the telephone. I learned the fundamentals of office etiquette and successful customer service.
Most importantly, I learned accountability, responsibility, and time management skills. I was able to directly apply these skills as I moved into the next chapter of my life and successfully graduated from Penn State Law School. I am confident that the experience I had while working at Employee Plans Services has been, and will continue to be, invaluable in shaping my life as a confident and prepared young professional.

I really enjoyed my experience as an accounting and finance intern at Employee Plans Services. It was an excellent opportunity for me to apply the knowledge and skills obtained in the classroom to the "real world" professional environment. I gained valuable experience in small business accounting and extensive knowledge of Quick Books. The internship helped me improve my attention to detail skills, and further develop my analytic abilities and technical skills by tackling various projects. Furthermore, the internship tremendously helped me improve my time management skills by meeting all the tight financial deadlines. The valuable skills acquired during the internship helps me in my career as an accountant/auditor and helped me immensely during my graduate years at Robert H. Smith School of Business, University of Maryland.
I would like to extend my gratitude to Employee Plans Services for giving my classmates and me the opportunity to work on an action learning project with the company during my graduate studies. Employee Plans Services is very involved with the students at University of Maryland and they were a big help for our project. Thank you!
James Osho Business Development Intern
During my time at EPS, I was able to get a better understanding of how small businesses work and how heavily involved every employee must be in the decision-making process. At EPS I was provided with the autonomy to make key decisions which allowed me to thrive and take personal responsibility for important tasks. By working in every step of our marketing and sales funnel, I gained crucial experience in business development and consultative sales. Being acknowledged for my hard work was always a great feeling which motivated me even further. Overall, I am confident that the experience I had while working at Employee Plans Services has been invaluable and will help carry me forward in my professional career.
Melody Chew Graphic Design Intern
I have learned a lot about health insurance through my graphic design internship with Employee Plans Services. Designing the flyers and brochures have really helped me gain more experience with the design software I used and added more material for my portfolio. I also learned a lot about working independently, and working under strict deadlines. I also gained a lot of real-life work experience, managing my projects and by working independently with the sales representatives.
Nick Bravos Graphic Design Intern
Over the course of my ten-month tenure with EPS, I was able to flex my creative muscles in a fast-paced environment that changed minute-by-minute. One of the most useful skills I took away is that I became adept at paying close attention to detail – the nitty gritty stuff – which I attribute to self-proofing my projects.
Another take away would be the priceless skill of foresight. From step one, I learned how to strategize, develop, and execute campaigns directed at specific clients. I was able to train myself to always be thinking endgame while designing, and because of that I was able to produce work that translated well across different mediums.

I was not only able to develop my portfolio, but also enhance my attention to detail, time management skills, and technical skills. I thoroughly enjoyed my time at Employee Plans Services and I am extremely grateful for the experience.
