My road in life took a while to figure out.
Took on an internship to see if I enjoyed the field.
Accepted an offer to join my 1st company before Senior year so I could forego the job search stress.
Left my first company voluntarily when it became apparent that they were in financial trouble.
Sought out a mentor at my 2nd company that I am still in touch with 15+ years later.
Took on a new role outside of my comfort zone.
Built and maintained a network of peers and mentors that I could seek out for advice.

Day to Day

Depending on the time of year, we may be focused on planning and conducting recruiting events on college campuses, strategizing with our hiring businesses or interacting with our interns over the course of the summer. A great day at work for me involves getting to meet with the college talent that we hire and hearing about the projects they are working on, the impact they are having and how surprised they are at their new found passion for the insurance industry!
