Insurance Alternatives, LLC
Jon Pociask, Class of 2003
Insurance Alternatives, LLC (IA) is a managing general agency in the insurance industry. My duties as intern were primarily focused around accounting duties but covered a great variety of operations in this small firm. I was also assigned several projects, including the production of manual detailing the procedures of broker commission payments, which is somewhat complicated in the insurance industry, and aiding in the transition to a new accounting software system. This internship was an excellent opportunity to gain invaluable experience in the business field. I would highly recommend all students to strongly consider an internship. This experience gave me an opportunity to develop a familiarity with the business field and gain some real world experience before pursuing a career.
