Read about Darrien’s internship experience: Working at United Guaranty has truly been a rewarding experience. I am currently working as a communication analyst in the IT/Training department. I am amazed at how great the culture and atmosphere is at United Guaranty. The managers and staff are very helpful and it seems like everyone wants to see you succeed. I have been introduced to so many people at the company who love design and the arts as much as I do, and I have met art directors, web designers, aspiring film-makers, and graphic designers who all use their skill-set to make a difference at the company. This is my first time working in a corporate environment and I absolutely love it because United Guaranty makes you feel at home. My favorite part was receiving my own desk, computer, and plaque that has my name on it.  However, United Guaranty makes sure you are receiving more than just an internship experience. Since the very first day I walked in the door, it has been nothing but work and everything I have done and learned has been valuable real world experience. You are not just an intern; you are a United Guaranty employee.
