At Catto & Catto, we love sharing our expertise and unique company culture with our clients and the community. This summer, we hired a summer intern from St. Mary’s University to join Jim Greaves and our risk management team. In just a few short months, Kyler Lambert has had the opportunity to live the Catto & Catto Experience firsthand. Here’s what he had to say about his internship with us:
My name is Kyler Lambert, and I am a junior finance major at St. Mary’s University. I first learned about the opportunity with Catto & Catto at an insurance career fair at the beginning of the year. After talking to several employees, I applied for the internship, completed an in-person interview and began as an intern on May 9, 2016.
Prior to my internship, I had very little understanding of risk management or the insurance industry as a whole. Managers often overlook the safety and risks associated with their business. I was fascinated to learn how much money can be saved if the proper time and attention are invested in training employees. Over the course of a few months, I was trusted to prepare mid-year review packets for the clients we insure and learned valuable skills that I will carry with me in my professional career.
Having little work experience, it’s hard to compare Catto & Catto to other jobs I’ve had. However, when I talk to my friends about their internships, it’s evident that my experience as an intern has been different. When I walk into the office, I don’t just walk into a cubicle. I walk into an office where everyone says hello and takes an active interest in who I am and what I have going on. Here, I am able to create friendly, dynamic conversations that make for a happier, healthy work environment. While there’s always work to be done, at Catto & Catto it’s fun. It would definitely be hard to top this experience.
