Intern Spotlight: Jessica Graham

We are excited to introduce our new intern for the Fall Semester, working at our Roanoke Headquarters!

Meet Jessica Graham, Human Resources Intern

Jessica Graham joined the Human Resources team on October 1 to provide assistance to Marie, Wanda, and Marylin. In the thick of open enrollment season, Jessica has already been a huge help in making sure the HR team and Associated Asphalt’s employee are supported.

Jessica is currently pursuing her Associates Degree in Business Administration and Management before transferring to complete her Bachelors Degree in Business Human Resources Management at Mary Baldwin University and has previous experience in HR for the retail industry.

“I just really love the idea of being a  helpful resource for a company,” says Jessica. “When people have a problem or need to navigate their benefits, I want them to know that they can come to me and I can help them figure out what to do about it.”

So far, she has been helping the team organize files, prepare open enrollment packets, and provide support in preparing for upcoming career fairs. She adds that while this is a very busy time for the team, she has appreciated that everyone takes the time out of their work to explain her tasks and projects clearly so that she can do the best job possible.

Outside of work and school, when she has a sliver of spare time, Jessica tries to stay active. As a former cross country and track runner and soccer player, she tries to find the time to play a pick up game or volunteer as a coach.

We can’t wait to see what other experiences she’s able to gather in her time at Associated Asphalt. Check back at the end of the semester to hear what she’s learned!
