Upcoming Event: RMI Shadow Day

Stock photo of CU Denver studentsOn Friday, November 9, 2012, the Risk Management and Insurance (RMI) Program at the University of Colorado Denver Business School is hosting a shadow day for Graduate and Undergraduate Students.  This unique opportunity allows students to job shadow at an RMI-related employer, allowing students to “try it on for a day.”

This is the chance for All CU Denver Students, including non-RMI students, to find out about career opportunities in the RMI industry. Each participant will be paired with an RMI employer to shadow their employees and/or executives. This is a great way to learn about the industry and opportunities, as well as to network with professionals in the field.

Three great reasons why students should take advantage of this opportunity:

  1. The RMI Program’s industry partners continue to hire their graduates, even in this market!
  2. Safe, no pressure day of shadowing an RMI professional.
  3. Learn about opportunities in the field

All CU Denver students are welcome to participate, and the opportunity is perfect for students looking for a job after graduation, for an internship, or wanting to find out whether this field might be a good fit for them. Students will have an opportunity  to experience firsthand what a risk manager does, or an account executive, or a claims adjuster, or an underwriter, or a marketing rep, or loss control specialist, to name but a few of the opportunities that exist in the field.

Don’t miss out on this great opportunity to find out about a field that is looking for young college graduates to fill their talent pipeline. The industry is expected to lose 60% of their workforce to retirement in the next five years, which means tremendous growth potential for people entering the industry now.
