My internship experience was truly fun and different from anything I had ever done. I had no idea what an underwriter did when I started as an intern, and the department I was in was incredibly patient with me and helped me get up to speed quickly. It was certainly a “learn by doing” environment, which I loved. It allowed me to learn on the fly, and not be bogged down with boring training manuals and explanations on how to do things. Everything I did at AmWINS Program Underwriters (APU) was actively contributing to the underwriting process, and I felt more like a full-time employee than an intern. The office itself knows how to have fun, and really lives by the work hard, play hard mantra. This competitive environment and amazing people I have met in the Camp Hill office, is what made me to want to come back and begin my career at APU.
I was an RMI major at The University of Louisiana at Monroe where I met Tammy Culmone in the Baton Rouge office. Tammy helped me secure an internship with AmWINS Access in the summer of 2017, and my experience in West Palm was incredible! The culture, the resources provided, and reputation of the company are three factors that led to my decision to work for AmWINS. The technology platforms and centralized support staff were two areas that differentiated AmWINS; that combined with the success stories I heard from previous ULM alumnus and what they personally had to say about the company, made me feel like I was making the right decision joining the team.
I interned for AmWINS for four summers during college. After my second summer, I decided I wanted to have a career in insurance, so I changed my major to Risk Management and now I am a Provisional Broker with the Brokerage Division full-time. I really enjoyed the social aspect of AmWINS Brokerage. I was invited to lunches, happy hours, dinner and ball games, but what really impressed me was the culture of AmWINS. I love the team mentality and the transparency and accessibility of the corporate leadership team.
When I interned with AmWINS Program Underwriters (APU) in Camp Hill, PA, I was a rising senior at Penn State University and unsure about my career path. I was an economics major, and truthfully had never considered a career in underwriting. The underwriting done at APU is highly specialized and the people I worked side-by-side with are considered experts in their fields. The internship experience I had was hands-on, as I was truly put to work laying the groundwork for the underwriting process. Before I completed my internship, I was offered a full time position upon graduation. I would absolutely recommend AmWINS’ internship experience to any student in a related field. APU has truly helped me envision my place here long-term, and they have actively demonstrated to me that my voice and opinions matter.
