Provide a General Description of the Internship. Include daily tasks completed, the company and its employees, and any other information.
Assisted with quarterly reserve reviews by analyzing diagnostic data, determining appropriate development factors, and assigning weights to different development methods based on my analysis. Also automated tasks through VBA and SQL

Did you have a mentor?

If so, how did he/she help you during your internship?
I didn't have a specific mentor, but the entire actuarial team was very supportive and welcomed any questions I had.

Did you feel your RMI/AS classes better prepared you for the internship?
My AS and RMI courses provided me with the base knowledge I needed to understand what I was working on and how it affected the company.

Interviewing/Hiring Process Comments:
I interviewed at the Bala Cynwyd office after being selected from the Gamma resume book.

Were you assigned any special projects? If so please describe.
I was put on a team with interns from other projects and tasked with creating a brochure and 3 minute video that the company could possibly use at campus recruiting events.

What were the supplemental benefits besides the pay? (Internship Lunches, Housing, Sports Games, Happy Hours, etc.)
Lunch was occasionally provided

Describe the company's internship program(atmosphere, work load, work, housing, outside work activities, etc.).
The actuarial intern program is not very rigid with interns typically working on one large project while also being assigned smaller, ad-hoc projects as they arise. The work load is reasonable and there aren't typically hard deadlines.

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

Were you provided time off besides the weekend?

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