A red tree on the St. Thomas St. Paul Campus during the fall

(Underwriter at Travelers Insurance)

"I did not realize that underwriting was an attractive career to me until I applied for the job in October of my senior year at UST and began to talk to people in the field. After learning that underwriting is heavily focused in analytical skills and interpersonal communication skills, I realized that it could be a great career choice going forward. Lots of underwriters come from a liberal arts background, like St. Thomas, because that is precisely the purpose of a liberal arts education, developing students' capacity to evaluate a situation from multiple perspectives and act accordingly given all that they know."
