Provide a General Description of the Internship. Include daily tasks completed, the company and its employees, and any other information.
I created product comparisons, worked on client presentations, and quality reviewed my coworkers presentations.

Did you have a mentor?

If so, how did he/she help you during your internship?
I had two mentors who gave me advice on how to do all my work and made me feel like a part of the team.

Did you feel your RMI/AS classes better prepared you for the internship?
Yes, my classes gave me fundamental knowledge about the insurance industry so I was familiar with the terms used by my coworkers.

Interviewing/Hiring Process Comments:
I spoke with Trion at the intern reception on Thursday, got called back for an interview at Temple on Monday, and received an offer on Tuesday.

Were you assigned any special projects? If so please describe.
Yes, there were a few clients I worked on from start to finish. I sent out the RFPs, went through the proposals to compile a product comparison, then created a client presentation, and attended the client meeting.

What were the supplemental benefits besides the pay? (Internship Lunches, Housing, Sports Games, Happy Hours, etc.)
Trion provided us with free lunches and took all the interns to a Phillies game.

Describe the company's internship program(atmosphere, work load, work, housing, outside work activities, etc.).
I thought Trion had a great internship program. The company offered its interns frequent lunches with professionals in different functions across the organization. We were also invited to training sessions to sharpen our professional skills, such as, business etiquette training, presentation skills training, customer service training, etc.

Was the internship what you expected after the interviewing/hiring process?

Were you provided time off besides the weekend?
Yes, when my family went on vacation, I took off 2 days to join them for an extended weekend.

If you had to relocate, describe the process of adapting to a new city.
