    Senior Spotlight: Kayla C. Abcede '22

    March 28, 2022

    This week's senior spotlight is with Kayla C. Abcede '22, Garwood, New Jersey, a business analytics major.

    What are your career goals?

    I recently accepted a job offer from Chubb Insurance in their Chubb Associate - Personal Risk Services. In a few years I plan on studying for my CPCU (Chartered Property Casualty Underwriter) and continuing to learn more about insurance underwriting.

     Tell us about a professional/service/internship experience you had.

    I was a Marketing and Sales intern for ComServe Systems in Moosic, Pennsylvania during the summer. My most recent internship was Commercial Underwriting for Berkshire Hathaway GUARD Insurances in Wilkes Barre, which I did during the semester which helped me learn about insurance and how underwriting works in the process.

    What is a piece of advice you would give to a first-year student?

    The one piece of advice I would give is it is okay to come in as undecided. I went in as undecided and changed my major many times from engineering management to thinking I wanted to do accounting to thinking about economics before finally deciding business analytics was my calling. I would also take advantage of reaching out to your professors and Scranton alumni because they are always willing to help when it comes to finding internships or even jobs.

    What will you miss most about Scranton?

    I will miss seeing the familiar faces on campus and being within walking distance of all my friends. But I will also miss the raspberry chicken from the third floor (of DeNaples), which is one of my all-time favorites.
