The National Life Group, headquartered in Montpelier, VT, has been working closely with both the Department of Business Administration and Accounting and the Internship Office to recruit students into internships that can lead to full-time employment after graduation. NLG has developed an extensive range of internship areas, including finance, accounting, marketing, information technology, and actuary product development.
During the summer of 2011, four SMC students participated in the firm’s internship program, working in busines units ranging from Accounting to Audit/Risk Services to Product Development. Following up on the success of the summer program, NLG invited Saint Michael’s students to visit the company’s offices in Montpelier and meet with executives from various departments as a preview to an internship in either the spring or summer.
On October 26, Business & Accounting Department Chairman Robert Letovsky took five students to NLG, where they met with several NLG executives to discuss both internships and possible post-graduation opportunities.
