Uniontown, OH (PRWEB) May 31, 2012
Tegrit Group and The University of Akron have partnered together for a second year to provide internship opportunities for six students from the College of Business and Department of Mathematics. These student interns will have the opportunity to explore the many facets of the retirement industry through their positions in the Actuarial Services, Benefits Administration and Defined Contribution departments.
The program is coordinated by Megan McCormick, who began her career four years ago with Tegrit Group as an undergraduate at The University of Akron, while she was pursuing her degree in Applied Mathematics. Three of the four interns from the 2011 internship program have joined Tegrit Group as full-time employees in 2012- Katie McCallum, Ed Helbley, and David Gossett. Kristi Morhidge continues her internship in 2012 as she finishes her undergraduate studies through 2013. These past interns, along with Don Anderson in the Benefits Administration Department, will serve as peer mentors for the students, enriching the program through direct training and teaching while bridging the gap from college life to the professional world. The program's continued success has been made possible through the strong support and enthusiasm for this program from the Tegrit Group employees, and continues to provide the firm with new talent through the excellent caliber of students at The University of Akron.
John Harabedian, Managing Director for Tegrit Group – Retirement Plan Services division states,“Tegrit Group’s internship program with the University of Akron has far exceeded our expectations. University professors have taken the time to build relationships with us as well as with the students which has allowed them to be active and effective in the selection process. Students have commented that they enjoy working for Tegrit Group because of our positive culture, and because they are given opportunities to work on challenging projects that directly impact our clients. We have been thrilled with the quality of students we have met through the University of Akron, many of whom have accepted full time positions with Tegrit Group upon graduation".
