Amar Bukvic's Internship

UVA Career Center – June 29th, 2017

The sun rises at 0501 with roosters from the neighboring park reminding you of the day that is about to begin. Cobble stoned streets awaken with activity in much the same way as when they were laid down during the renaissance. Local pastry, bakery, and coffee shops open their doors throughout the residential streets awaiting the hungry commuter with strong drips of espresso and pain au chocolate. There is diversity among the people on the streets but they all seem to act in unison entering the tram, riding their bicycles, or walking to where they need to be.

Lucas Dolan's Internship

UVA Career Center – June 29th, 2017

Today officially marks the start of my third week here at the American Council of Life Insurers as an economic research intern. Over the past two weeks I’ve become fully immersed in the operations of the trade association while adjusting to the pace of the work week.

I was apprehensive entering the internship as I was unfamiliar with both the industry I would be working to represent and the responsibilities of a job in a traditional office setting. However, I quickly came to realize my fears were unwarranted.
