Joining the AIG Summer Internship Program is a great way to enhance your business acumen and gain insight into our industry. As a Summer Intern, you will work closely with mentors and colleagues, as you are challenged with meaningful, business-critical projects. In addition to your day-to-day responsibilities, you will also be exposed to other business areas within AIG to gain a broader knowledge of what we do. During the summer, AIG will have the opportunity to assess your fit with the organization and your potential contribution to one of our full-time programs. Additionally as interns, you will have the opportunity to consider AIG as part of your future career plans.

After a week of orientation and intensive training, Summer Interns will join one of our business lines, each of which offers a unique opportunity of working in a diverse, global and collegial environment. AIG’s culture encourages and offers early recognition for achievement, in addition to increased responsibility. Summer Interns will have exposure to senior business leaders as well as a mentoring network to foster individual, professional relationships.

The Summer Internship Program lasts approximately 10 weeks and is targeted to students entering their final year of their undergraduate or graduate education. In addition to the experience acquired on the job, interns have the opportunity to participate in learning seminars, volunteer activities and networking events.
