Experiential Opportunities & Post Graduate Success: Gabe Rizzo
January 24th, 2020. Gabe Rizzo ‘21 had a chance encounter in Good Counsel Career Counseling Center early last semester. There, Gabe met a graduate student who encouraged Gabe to reach out to a friend of his at A-G Administrators, an athletics insurance program provider in Berwyn. The company looked like the perfect fit for Rizzo who was looking for an internship during the school year.
Rizzo, a Finance and International Business major, called that night. He interviewed for an internship position just a few days later.
“I fell in love with the atmosphere and the positive energy that the entire company gave off,” said Rizzo. “I received the job offer that night, and I accepted it.”
In his role, Rizzo provides accounting, analytical, and reporting support to the A-G Finance and AccountingTeam. The internship also requires him to work on a lot of different finance and accounting projects. On one project, he met with claims examiners and members of several departments to determine the profitability of various college programs that the claims examiners deal with on a weekly basis.
For Rizzo, the fall semester was not long enough for this on-the-job experience.
“I could talk about this all day,” he says. “The internship was a really positive experience, and I will be continuing the internship next semester.
