The Lockton summer interns are exposed to different functional areas of the business and have the opportunity to interact with many Associates. Each intern is paired with a performance coach who helps to guide them through the course of the internship. The program is very "hands-on" with the intern being included in such activities as marketing, policy review, client renewal presentations and onsite client meetings. The internship will include a group project that culminates in a formal presentation to senior management. Interns get the opportunity to meet and work with a variety of students from varying schools and programs.
Successful candidates have shown balanced success in both academics and extracurricular activities. GPA requirement is a minimum of 3.3 and involvement in a combination of sports, student government, college clubs, community service, and work is desired. Lockton also looks for leadership positions in these activities as an added plus. Strong to excellent communication skills are required as well. Lockton looks for students entering their senior year who are focused on a career in commercial insurance or employee benefits.
