If you’re looking to use strong analytical and math skills in a competitive, fast-paced environment, a Risk Management Underwriting career at Cigna will allow you to do all this and more. Underwriters evaluate the risk of insuring a potential Cigna customer and use that information to set premium rates for insurance policies. As part of our Risk Management Underwriting team, you will directly impact our business on a daily basis, protecting Cigna‘s sound financial position which enables us to meet our financial commitments to our customers.
Before we move on, let us tell you a little more about us. We’re a global health service company dedicated to helping people improve their health, well-being and sense of security. But we don’t just care about your well-being, we care about your career health too. That’s why when you work with us, you can count on a different kind of career - you’ll make a difference, learn a ton, and share in changing the way people think about healthcare.
What you’ll do:
Cigna Risk Management Underwriting is looking for motivated individuals to join us in the Risk Management Underwriting Summer Internship Program. The internship is designed to further develop analytical skills and business acumen in a dynamic and flexible work environment. A great way to assess whether the underwriting profession in general and Cigna in particular are a good fit for you is to participate in our underwriting summer internship. This 12 week program from late May to early August will expose you to what life as an underwriter will be like and serves as a “two way interview”; we view the internship program as a source to identify full time talent.
