ULM student lands prestigious internship; one of 10 nationwide

Ashley Murphy, a junior at the University of Louisiana at Monroe, was one of 10 students chosen to work at the National Association of Professional Surplus Lines Officers, Inc. The paid summer internship will send Murphy to New York, Philadelphia and Dallas where she’ll learn all aspects of the surplus lines insurance industry.

Murphy, an economics and risk management and insurance major from Parkers Chapel, Ark., is thrilled about the opportunity.

“I will experience all facets of the company. I will be sent to various business partners across the country, such as Scottsdale, Ariz. and New York, N.Y., to visit branches and people they do business with,” she said. “Not only will I learn more about the industry I look forward to working in, but I will gain unique business and academic experience, industry contacts and insight into various career routes. I was told by many people, one a former NAPSLO intern, that NAPSLO interns are highly sought-after.”

NAPSLO established the Internship Program in 1981 to interest students in the Surplus Lines Industry, which handles unique, unusual, or hard-to-place risks.
