Recently, on March 2nd, 2012, several Gophers participated in an Allianz site visit. Among these athletes, seven different University of Minnesota athletic teams were represented at the event including members from Women’s Track and Field, Swimming and Diving, Soccer, and Golf. The men’s teams represented were Football, Track and Field, and Swimming and Diving.

The Golden Gopher student-athletes started off their day with a warm welcome from the Director of Internal Sales, Susan Wagner and then met with Allianz team members who shared about their personal experience with the company. After reviewing all of the Allianz career opportunities, these Gophers had the opportunity to listen in with Allianz professionals speaking to real clients on a phone-splitting exercise. After their tour, they then parted with Allianz, but not before picking up on some important and key Career philosophies.

Teresa Puga, a member of the University of Minnesota’s Women’s Golf Program, and also an attendant of the event stated, “I believe that the visit to Allianz was a positive experience for everyone. Fist of all, Allianz's organization for the event was fantastic. I definitely recommend this visit for anyone who has the opportunity because besides networking and seeing how a company does business in an every day setting, I also had a great time meeting wonderful people.”

A special thank you goes out to Allianz for coordinating this event for our Gophers and for also letting them become a part of their company for a day. Check back soon for more information on your Student-Athlete Affairs and your favorite Golden Gophers.
