How did you learn about this opportunity?

I learned about this opportunity from career fairs and professional events on campus.

Tell us a little bit about your experience.

As an intern in the Claims Department of Liberty Mutual, I was responsible for contacting providers for work status and office notes, informing customers of the progress of the claim, investigating the claim to my best ability, interviewing injured workers about their accidents, and scheduling MRIs, X-Rays, etc for injured workers.

How did this experience impact you academically?

This internship confirmed for me that my major is my true passion.

"This experience opened my eyes to career paths outside of the criminal justice system, specifically in the private sector."

What are your career goals and plans?  How did this experience impact them?

My internship with Liberty Mutual was very different from my prior internship experiences. Before this opportunity I never considered a career in the private sector or the insurance industry. This experience opened my eyes to career paths outside of the criminal justice system, specifically in the private sector. I strongly recommend that other Liberal Arts majors pursue opportunities outside of their predicted career path because you never know where they will take you!

Would you recommend this experience to other Liberal Arts students?

Yes, I would recommend this experience to other Liberal Arts majors. It opened my eyes to opportunities outside of the criminal justice system.
