L/H Actuarial

"There was never a time when I felt like I had work that I could not do, yet I also felt challenged along the way and always had something meaningful to work on."

I was really impressed with how well COUNTRY Financial managed to blend doing real work and keeping the work load manageable. There was never a time when I felt like I had work that I could not do, yet I also felt challenged along the way and always had something meaningful to work on.

COUNTRY also felt just like a big family. My mentor and supervisor were readily available to help, and I had multiple coworkers in my department offer to help me whenever it was needed. I even exchanged a few sentences with our CEO and walked into work with him a few times, which says a lot about the company culture.

This internship really opened up my eyes to what life as an actuary will be like, and it helped prepare me for that in every way. I learned a lot of valuable information, and I realized that this is definitely something I can make a career out of.
