What’s been your career path at Prudential? 

In June 2018, I was an intern in the Individual Solutions Group. In June 2019, I joined Prudential full-time as a Life Underwriter.

How do you describe your role?

As a Life Underwriter, I protect Prudential from financial loss. I assess risk with life insurance applications by reviewing medical and financial history. I contribute to the daily processing of these applications by using standard underwriting guidelines.

What are some key projects that you've worked on that excite or have excited you most? 

As an intern, I was able to assist the Prudential fast track team with suggestions on how to make their overall process easier to understand from the lens of a college student and make the system run more smoothly.

What is it like to work at Prudential?

Challenging, yet rewarding. As a recent hire I've been learning so much with the help of my manager and mentor. I'm challenged every day. I know that the experience and knowledge I'm gaining here is an investment for my future and career.

What are you passionate about as it relates to your work?

Encouraging and supporting others. I work closely with a team of underwriters, and always help the team if any roadblocks pop up.

What excites you most about Prudential?

The teamwork atmosphere. A lot of work can be done independently but you're always encouraged to share ideas and knowledge. It's great to see people from different backgrounds achieve a common goal.

Any advice you may have for entry level talent?

Keep your mind or options open. Find a company or workplace that you can picture yourself in. Make sure that you can benefit from what the company has to offer.

How would you describe Prudential culture in one word?

Innovative.

What do you like to do in your free time outside of work?

I enjoy working out with friends. I enjoy going to the lake with my family and friends (doing everything from fishing to tubing). I also enjoy going to concerts and attending comedy shows.
