Student Update

Trevor Thompson, a recent MPA graduate, is now the Staff Benefits Administrator in the Staff Benefits Office at the main campus of the Cleveland Clinic in Cleveland, Ohio. Trevor began work in his new position in April after nearly a year-long job search. In his new position, Trevor meets with all newly hired physicians to go over their benefits packages one-on-one. He also assists physicians with any benefits-related issues and administers the organization’s life insurance policies. In his own words, Trevor said he “like(s) it a lot because I get to meet new people from all over the world everyday and no two days are the same.” Trevor attributes his success in the job search in part to graduate work in the department. “I have to say that I owe this job to my studies as a master’s student at Akron. My supervisor was quite impressed with my resume, which was bolstered by my educational background and the internship experiences I had while a student at Akron.” Congratulations Trevor!
