Meet the Fleet Response Summer Intern Class of 2021

The internship program at Fleet Response offers real-life hands-on experiences allowing the interns to work collaboratively on many different projects and tasks to begin their professional careers. The interns will also work closely with our internship coordinators and spend time with each department learning day-to-day operations. They will be working with our claims, subrogation, marketing, accounting, maintenance, and information technology departments.

In 2020, because of COVID-19, our internship program transitioned to a fully remote program. Fortunately, with our office reopening in May, we can welcome interns back into the office three days a week where they will become acclimated to the corporate office environment here at Fleet Response.

As we prepare to move into a new corporate office in August, our interns will be working on collaborative presentations giving recommendations on decisions regarding the new office.

Camryn Tonozzi is a senior at Miami University majoring in psychology and minoring in sociology. She loves spending time with friends, listening to music, hiking, going to new places, and going to the beach. Camryn said, “I am excited to learn about how to communicate with people, handle real-world situations helping customers, building relationships, and applying what I have learned at Miami in the business world.”

In its 4th year, our program continues to focus on providing our interns with meaningful work that they gain valuable skills and knowledge from. We are proud to offer students these opportunities every summer. We hope the skills they develop at Fleet Response will create a path to success in their lives and prepare them for future employment.
