She wants to apply her knowledge about database management and programming to real-life situations. Alyssa is attending Virginia Military Institute, and was born and raised in Salem, Virginia. “What attracted me most to Intact Insurance is its core values because they are the same values that I personally hold, and are similar to my school values,” she says. “I also saw great reviews about Intact online on the work environment and focus on employee development”, she adds. The last TV show she watched was Netflix original, Cobra Kai – which became one of her favorite shows.

He is interested in learning about the specifics that come with evaluating risk with potential clients. Ryan is from Mequon, WI. “I knew I wanted to intern at an insurance company this summer. After searching different opportunities, I found Intact. I read its core values on the website, and I felt they resonated with me,” he says. Ryan wishes to visit Ireland one day. He loves to golf and there are many golf courses that people have recommended him to visit. His family is also from Ireland so he would like to experience the country’s culture.
