Paid global internships

One of the major brands in insurance and risk is AIG, which operates in 130 countries. Insurance companies are often interested in receiving applications from students and graduates of any discipline.

Like many large firms, AIG offers paid internships for penultimate and Masters students. An internship will give you exposure to business operations and functions and the chance to work on a variety of projects.The major difference is that the AIG offices that students can work at are in the following locations:

  • Frankfurt
  • Milan
  • Paris
  • Johannesburg
  • Brussels
  • Madrid
  • Stockholm
  • Oslo

AIG say “Student CVs with international experience stand out from the crowd in any field, and this is particularly true of our global sector. So students could spend ten weeks working with underwriters, gaining hands-on experience and technical knowledge as well as using their foreign language skills. You can visit our website for more information”.

Worth a look in? Closing date for applications 30 Jan 2015.
