Monica Yant Kinney: A reverse twist on medical insurance
September 12, 2011
Jimmy Curran should celebrate.
The 22-year-old Montgomery County native graduated from Temple University’s honors program with a finance degree in May and parlayed experience at prestigious internships – on Wall Street and Capitol Hill – into a job offer at Independence Blue Cross.
Last week, Curran and a pal found an apartment in a Center City high-rise. On Monday, he starts work as a market research analyst for the insurer, remarkable given how many smart and savvy grads remain sidelined by the economy.
So what ails this young corporate climber? The gnawing feeling that he’s about to be punished for doing exactly what he was told.
