elite 50 cover

There is nothing more impactful to building the talent pipeline for the Insurance Industry than our internships. Companies can test drive talent, learn from fresh perspectives, expose young professionals to their brand, foster leadership in current employees, and the list goes on. Interns gain real world experience, learn about their strengths and weaknesses, and gauge whether a job or industry is the right career for them. 

How do interns know which companies have the best programs? The RISE Elite 50 Internships identifies and publishes a list of the 50 best internship programs in the Insurance Industry across the USA. 

2021 came with its own unique set of challenges including canceled in person programs as offices adapted to new developments, a tightening labor market, and more companies getting comfortable with virtual opportunities, opening up the talent pool for companies who historically only recruited from particular schools.

Join us in congratulating the companies who made the Elite 50 Internships 2021 list!
