A Day in the Life was unlike any other event we’d held before. To be fair, virtual firm visits are unlike many other events anyway.
Although it didn’t go entirely as planned (we had originally wanted to be in person at the actual firm, but COVID wasn’t doing us any favours), it was still super interactive.
The event started with a quick introduction and presentation from two underwriters, which was very informative and engaging. After that, we got to see some video clips filmed of the Intact office! I personally thought it was awesome getting to see the inside of the building – a building we all walk across after our exams, and a building I’ve always imagined working in. The event wrapped up with a Q&A, and it was amazing to see both event attendees and industry representatives so engaged in asking and answering questions!
Through this event, not only did I learn about the culture at Intact and daily life of an Intact-er, but I also got to discover the “behind-the-scenes” of working in insurance. Besides this, the most important thing I took from A Day in the Life is that a work environment needs to be balanced; it can’t be only work, but it also can’t be only play – and Intact definitely achieves this balance!
