I began my internship at Chesapeake Bank in June of 2017 while home for the summer from studying at Christopher Newport University.
Originally from Mathews, Virginia, a small town, I came into the internship familiar with things like shopping locally and supporting the community. By becoming a part of the Chesapeake Bank team, I learned first-hand just how important — and different — community banking truly is. Here are the top 10 things I took away from my time with some great people at a great place to work: Chesapeake Bank.
From the warm welcome I received through my final days, Chesapeake Bank provided me so many opportunities — from local events to meetings with the Bank’s president — to learn and grow as a young professional.
