This window contains TWO summaries of internships at SilverStone Group
Paula Schmeichel (Class of 2008) SilverStone Group is an independent consulting, actuarial and insurance brokerage firm. The company is based and was started in Omaha 60 years ago, but in the past couple years has added a Sioux Falls office to its locations. My duties at the office varied at any given time. I spent some days in meetings with prospective and current clients while other days I worked on building a database of potential clients in the area. I was able to gain valuable experience working with computer programs such as Outlook and Excel which are used in most business settings. Most of all, I enjoyed working with the people of SilverStone Group. They are a very experienced group of individuals who go out of their way to give you the best experience possible. I would recommend this internship to anyone considering a career in sales, insurance, or finance.
