This summer Farah worked for the Casualty Department at Marsh. She mainly dealt with Worker’s Comp, General Liability and Auto Liability. She did have a mentor there. As a Summer Risk Analyst, her job consisted of assisting Client Representatives with upcoming renewals. This consisted of loss projections, collateral models for the clients, worker’s compensation audits, and benchmarking, as well checking policies for accuracy once they came from the carrier. The people at Marsh were very nice and helpful; many were Temple graduates who were very encouraging to her. The RMI classes gave her a great background when running various models or benchmarking. She knew what each endorsement meant, why a certain model had to be completed or why the client was asking things to be done.
Initially the interview process was a little tough with the economy, however, once the interviewing was completed, the hiring process was quite simple. A special project she did was benchmarking the client’s domestic and foreign programs against their competitors. Also, as part of the Summer Risk Analyst Program at Marsh, all the SRA’s were assigned to do a request for proposal (RFP) for the Chicago 2016 Olympics. Working with four other individuals across the nation, they compiled the RFP for Chicago and presented why Marsh should be their broker. Her favorite thing about the internship was the people she worked with. She met genuine people who cared, were helpful, and looked out for her the whole summer, and they were able to provide her with a well rounded experience at Marsh. Her only dislike was that she was the only intern in the Philadelphia office. She felt like she had no peers to relate to, and it would have been nice to have the support of someone who was in her shoes. She would definitely recommend Marsh to other students.
