Insurance Career Days and Resume Book

Establishing and maintaining contact with the insurance industry is a hallmark of the Ole Miss RMI program. The success of an academic program is often measured by the ability of its graduates to find employment in their chosen field. One of the highlights for us at the Ole Miss RMI program is to see industry partners and our students come together at our biannual career fairs - in October and February. Our career fair is limited to our majors and those taking our insurance classes. More than 38 companies participated in our fairs this past year. Recruiters interested in receiving information on the fairs may contact Ms. Kathy Shoalmire at kshoalmire@bus.olemiss.edu or by calling (662) 915-2830.

Our annual resume book is available in two formats: electronic or hard copy. Please email Ms. Shoalmire at kshoalmire@bus.olemiss.edu and enter "resume book" in the subject line. For hard copies please provide mailing address.

Ole Miss RMI students benefit from summer internships
Twenty-five Ole Miss RMI students completed paid internships this summer in 12 states across the industry. In addition to gaining valuable experience, students earned up to 6 hours of credit for completing the summer internship. At the mid-point of their internships, students interviewed their supervisor and colleagues to learn what they should stop doing, keep doing, or start doing. At the end of their internships, students turned in a report that included a detailed analysis of their employer’s strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats. Employer feedback on our interns was unanimously positive.
