Liberty Mutual - Boston - Summer Marketing Internships

Comment from Professor Griffin - sometimes these "marketing internships" may involve cold calling.  I suggest if you apply and get an interview, ask about that aspect of it.  However, if a career in insurance appeals to you, where the money can be very good, this could be a great experience and a foot in the door with a major insurance company.  These descriptions appear to minimize the amount of cold calling so that may be very good news for an intern. The Liberty Mutual posting states that the compensation is $14-$18 per hour.
