About the role

As an AIG Intern, you have the opportunity to experience two different roles within AIG’s Risk Consulting practice. Field Risk Engineering and Account Risk Engineering both play a vital role in helping our clients manage risk and our ability to provide market leading insurance products by working hand in hand with our underwriters.

Field Risk Engineers are responsible for working on site with clients to identify risks to their business such as fire, flood, windstorm, equipment breakdown etc. One day you may be on site at a metal working facility, the next, a university campus. After the survey is complete, it’s time to tap into those strong analytical skills and develop real world loss prevention solutions to keep our clients in business!

Account Risk Engineers are responsible for managing our clients at the corporate level. They work directly with decision makers to help them understand the risks associated with their business and prioritize risk management opportunities. The account engineer is responsible for developing an in-depth analysis of the client’s operation, including any existing hazards and recommendations. This analysis is in turn used by underwriting to develop a comprehensive insurance policy specific to our client’s needs.

Responsibilities include:

  • Travel to observe property loss prevention surveys at commercial facilities

  • Assist field risk engineering mentors to document survey results in a data-driven report writing application

  • Witness fire protection equipment testing

  • Assist account risk engineering mentors in the documentation of account reviews in a data-driven application

  • If the opportunity presents, attend a client service meeting with engineering, underwriting, broker, and client

  • Work on assigned projects in support of engineering and underwriting

    AIG’s summer interns are immersed in the day-to-day operations of a fast-moving, global insurance company. You will gain valuable, hands-on experience, enhance your business acumen and gain sight into our industry during the 10-week program. As a summer intern you will work side-by-side with industry leaders on dynamic projects, with ample opportunity for challenges, learning and achievement.

    After initial orientation and training, summer interns will join the Casualty Risk Consulting team to obtain core technical knowledge and professional skills in a diverse and global environment . In addition to the experience acquired on the job, summer interns have the opportunity to learn directly from senior management and participate in webinars, discussion forums, and networking receptions.
