Primary Job Duties & Responsibilities:
The Business Insurance Underwriting Professional Development Program provides qualified students with an excellent opportunity to gain first-hand experience receive valuable on-the-job training and learn more about the property & casualty insurance industry. Each intern will be expected to complete challenging and meaningful project work over the course of this program. In addition, there are core assignments and a designated coach to further develop interns’ knowledge of insurance underwriting, sales and marketing.
What Exactly is an Underwriter?
Insurance is the contractual transfer of financial risk from one party to another. Underwriters (Account Executives) are the heart of the insurance process, gathering and researching pertinent information and then using finely tuned analytical skills to evaluate the acceptability of business and institutional risk. However, underwriters are more than just analysts – they are the core relationship builders with our agents and clients. They are responsible for managing a profitable portfolio of business through our distributing agents and brokers. An underwriting career includes a dynamic blend of analytical and marketing skills – it's challenging, stimulating and a superb career choice.
Candidate must be pursuing a Bachelor’s degree.
Approximate work availability from June through August (10-12 weeks) required.
