I was headed to Hartford, CT for my first business for the Travelers Indemnity Company. It was a 3 day business trip on June 15 to June 17.
Travelers have two corporate location where Hartford has largest number of employees and Saint Paul with over 2,000 employees. The purpose of the business trip was attend a conference for all interns through the United States. Over 200 interns from various states was gather at the conference.
Day 1: I flew out of Minneapolis at 10 am and arrived in Hartford at 1pm. Later on that afternoon, was the first meeting where all the interns gather to meet socially. There was dinner provided as well as many games for all intern to do and get to know each other.
Day 2: Today was a day full of meetings and networking activities. I attended a meeting about insurance as it's an important asset to the company. Also, I learned many things about business etiquette. Travelers also hosted a Intern Challenge to built the tallest standing tower. It was a competition between 20 groups and my team won the "Travelers Great Intern Challenge."
