Project Management Intern

June 2019 • Worcester, MA

What I liked

It was extremely fast-paced, challenging and dynamic. The internship program was well-run and designed to help interns explore fields of their interest while working on challenging projects in their area of expertise.

What I wish was different

There isn’t anything I would change about the program.

Advice

Don’t be afraid to network and explore fields outside of the one you’re interning in - it’s an extremely friendly and collaborative environment!

Personal Lines Underwriting Intern

June - August 2018 • Howell, MI

What I liked

Very detailed oriented, organized, and very generous to letting interns develop professional/personal skills. The best part, was having a 1 on 1 meeting every Friday with a upper level manager.

What I wish was different

More time, more in depth projects.

Advice

Have lots of insurance background, there is a ton of inspections included in this. Reach out more to employees within and they will help a ton, also memorizing state underwriting guidelines for the hub.

Product Intern

June - August 2018 • Worcester, MA

What I liked

I really enjoyed the people I worked with. They were all very personable and down-to-earth.

What I wish was different

I wish I had another intern working with me in my department. I did some cross-functional teamwork, but if I were to do it again it would be beneficial to have another intern in my function.

Advice

Come in with an open mind and be eager to learn.

Finance Intern

June - August 2018 • Worcester, MA

What I liked

My experience at Hanover was awesome. They had me doing real work and working on numbers and projects for the company.I got real world, hand-on experience. We also got weekly time to be with the other interns and learn about every department within the company which was invaluable.

What I wish was different

Nothin, the internship was honestly a perfect fit for me.

Advice

Work your hardest and participate every day so you get the most out of the experience!

Underwriting analyst - Management Liability

June 2017 • Itasca, IL

What I liked

I really enjoy the nature of management liability insurance coverage. Specifically, underwriting and pricing the risk by developing a thorough understanding of financial analysis and the applicant's nature of operations as it pertains to requested coverages.

What I wish was different

I wish I learned about the difference of insurance coverages at DePaul. I only worked on mathematical pricing methods and reserves for life insurance.

Advice

Actively apply and be alert of opportunities on all platforms. Be prepared for the interview. If a company is public, listen to their conference earnings call and take notes. Always send a thank you letter afterwards either via email or handwritten. But make sure to elude to specific points of the interview that you either enjoyed or are excited about/how you would make a good fit for the role.
