It is almost summer time and many St Mary’s and UTSA students are looking for summer internships and jobs. The IIASA has made a commitment to these schools to work with their students to increase their knowledge of and interest in a career in the insurance industry.
I am hoping that all our membership will consider a paid position for interested students during the 2018 summer months. But there is another great option where you can be a resource for these students. I would like you to consider mentoring one or two students during the summer and into the fall semester. Mentoring a student allows you to discuss your role in insurance over a lunch, dinner or coffee once a month or so. Allowing the student to “pick your brain” is a win-win for both of you. You may be recruiting a future agent, underwriter or actuary.
If you are available to assist with our internship or mentoring program, I look forward to hearing from you. I have resumes that I can send you from many of these energetic students.
I look forward to visiting with you if you have questions or suggestions on how we can add you to our list of participating members.
