I am currently in the last stages of the Underwriting Professional Development Program (UPDP) in St. Paul. This means I’m transitioning out of the classroom training and am able to work with my own mini-territory. My job is different everyday, with new challenges that constantly arise. I have to problem-solve my way through many issues that come up on a daily basis. I also have the opportunity to work with a variety of internal and external people. This is a great job for anyone who can think critically and creatively, likes to take initiative and thrives on change.
I accepted a position at Travelers because of the people I met along the way during the interview process. I spent a lot of time interviewing, and I’ve learned that one of the best ways to judge a company is by the people you meet during the interviews. The employees I met had great experiences working with Travelers and spoke about the things they were able to accomplish throughout their careers. This was really exciting to me, because I knew my career would be able to grow in many different directions. There’s always room for advancement here if you’re looking to challenge yourself.
The great benefits offered at Travelers were another reason I chose to work at the company. It was nice to know that right after college I wouldn’t have to worry about the little things as I transitioned into the “real world.”
What I enjoy most about Travelers are the people I’ve had the chance to meet and work with. I’m able to work in our St. Paul office, where all the leaders for my business unit sit. I was able to build relationships with them, and they were very excited to share their expertise and knowledge. Through participation in the UPDP, I was able to forge friendships with people from across the United States. Everyone that I’ve met has so much to teach me and has always been eager to help.
Now that you've met Ngoc, take some time to meet a few of the other employees who work at Travelers.Read more »
