About American Family Insurance

Originally Farmers Mutual Insurance Company, American Family Insurance was founded in 1927 by insurance salesman Herman Wittwer.  Though it began solely as an auto insurance company, AFI now offers everything from food to restaurant insurance, as well as financial product lines in 19 states.  AFI is the nation’s third-largest mutual property and casualty insurer, with $16.3 billion in assets and $4.8 billion in policyholder equity.

Student interns at AFI are placed depending on their major and career goals, and are assigned a mentor to advise them in their professional development.  Interns are given feedback on their performance and have the opportunity to provide feedback on their experience at AFI.  Most interns work at AFI during the summer, but in some cases these summer opportunities turn into a continuous engagement during the school year, based on manager needs and intern availability.  AFI also includes interns in social and networking events.


Open to students at any point in their academic careers who are pursuing a degree, advanced degree or a certificate program at a two- or four-year institution.  Non-U.S. citizens are eligible.
