NEATEST PROJECT OR ASPECT OF WORK:
The best aspect of my job is that I have only a few daily duties. I typically spend the majority of each day working on projects of varying lengths. Some of the projects end up taking only hours while others will never end. Right now my best project is a liability runoff for a bond product the company used to offer. I coordinate with lawyers and agencies across the country, project future losses, and administer the accounting and bond databases.
ADVICE OR COMMENTS:
Take advantage of the resources that are right in front of you (advisors who have been where you are now, other students, Career Services, etc.) Also, keep in mind that your daily habits determine who you are and will be.
