Class Level: Senior
Employer: Thrivent Financial
Internship Title: Licensed Office Professional Internship
How did you find your internship: Job Fair in the Fall of 2016
Summary of internship responsibilities: I had the opportunity to work alongside a financial representative. This meant I got to sit in on client and staff meetings, make appointments with clients, and organize networking events.
Recommendations for success: I would say that it’s most important to ask questions. I was nervous to tell my boss I didn’t quite understand something, but I realized that my boss was not only expecting me to get my job done correctly, but he also wanted me to make this experience the best learning opportunity possible.
