A talented group of interns recently completed a 10-week program that provided an understanding of Associated Benefits and Risk consulting and how the employee benefits, business insurance and human resources industries impact our work. The internship program includes accelerated education modules and a view of all aspects of insurance and benefits. Along with formal instructions, interns also have the opportunity to work alongside ABRC managers and service teams.
"Over the last couple months, I’ve built up a real interest in the sales consulting roles at ABRC," said Jack Urdahl, a senior at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire. "I love the idea of building and maintaining positive relationships with clients and I surprised myself when I realized I also enjoy the financial services side."
Interns provided support on a number of critical projects and objectives, applying new skills and knowledge to their daily work. "My internship gave me an understanding of the real value an organization can offer to clients," said Isetta Williams, a junior at the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities. "I enjoyed working on lots of different projects and having a place to learn and grow this summer," said Blake Barta, a finance major at the University of Minnesota-Duluth.
"Interns are an integral part of our strategic growth plan," said William M. Bohn, executive vice president and head of Wealth Management & Institutional Services, Associated. "These opportunities also provide valuable, practical experience applicable to real life, coursework and career planning."
Congratulations to our 2019 interns and good luck going forward in your academics and careers!
