Interning with the Fridley, MN office Primerica team has been an amazing opportunity. There have been several interesting mathematical concepts dealing with personal finance that I have learned, mostly involving basic investment strategies and various rules relating to practical money usage. Mostly, however, I gained a much deeper understanding of leadership and how to work with people and get them involved in doing things that make a lot of sense to them both career-wise and personally.
