Chubb

Actuarial Intern

June - August 2021 • Philadelphia, PA

What I liked

I liked being a valued member of a small actuarial team, performing meaningful work.

What I wish was different

I wish I had more opportunities to meet the actuarial interns in other offices.

Advice

This is an excellent internship experience, where you do real work for your team and then present your projects at the end of the internship to the entire actuarial department. A good presentation could seal the deal on being offered a full-time position.

Services Marketing and Communications Intern

June - August 2021 • Whitehouse Station, NJ

What I liked

I loved all of the people that I worked with this past summer, and the sense of community at Chubb.

What I wish was different

I wish they had a better HR department, it took a week into my internship to get my laptop. I also had to go to the tech department for multiple complications with my equipment throughout the summer.

Advice

Connect with everyone while you are doing your internship, you never know who they could know in the future!

FInancial Lines Claims Intern

June - July 2019 • Basking Ridge, NJ

What I liked

The commitment to their interns and exposing them to as much as possible, I thank Chubb for everything they provided. The versatility and flexibility allowed while conducting desk work, networking, and travel/shadowing, the internship served foundational for me moving forward.

What I wish was different

I spent 2-3 days shadowing the NYC underwriting office to see how that side of the business incorporated their efforts. How did underwriting affect the business? What did they do? I have always loved NYC and any and all ways to maximize my time in the big city would be beneficial in my viewpoint. As always, I'm always trying to grow the network and learn as much as possible; what better place than NYC?

Advice

As with any internship/work experience, ask questions as much as possible. Everyone in the workplace is receptive to questions [no dumb questions] and asking more and more allows for growth. The more information we know, they better we can help. I came in raw, introverted, and hesitant but a couple weeks into my first internship, I fully understood the perspective and actions necessary to continue moving forward [in my career].

Internal Audit Intern

June - August 2019 • Whitehouse Station, NJ

What I liked

I liked the building, it was very beautiful. I also enjoyed getting exposure to many different areas through internal audit.

What I wish was different

I wish the company culture was more inclusive of different types of people. I didn't feel like my ambition or drive was appreciated there, and I rarely had enough work to do.

Advice

CICA Intern

June - August 2019 • Wilmington, DE

What I liked

At Chubb, everyday was different! I was given real projects for the company, with the ability to share my knowledge with the rest of my team. I loved the team based work environment, everyone was always so willing to help. It was such a great learning experience!

What I wish was different

I wish that there was more interaction between interns. Throughout the 8 week internship program, we only met together a few times for company events. It would have been nice to work together to finish a major project for the company.

Advice

Never be afraid to ask for help or clarification on a project! Your internship at a company is only as great as you make it. Try to get exposure to as many things possible in the workplace. If there is something that you would like to learn about throughout your internship, feel free to approach you manager to let them know!

Global Information Security Communications Internship

April - September 2019 • Philadelphia, PA

What I liked

The company culture is very friendly and welcoming. I really liked working with people in Information Security team and learned from the team.

What I wish was different

I was only one Co-op in that department, so I had no one to talk (However, I supposed to work there not chatting, so it was totally fine with me).

Advice

My supervisor was super nice to me and I really loved what I had done there (including communicating with people from different countries).

Product

May - August 2018 • Whitehouse Station, NJ

What I liked

The corporate culture was very inclusive and welcoming. I was able to perform to the best of my abilities because I adapted quickly and became apart of the family. I also enjoyed learning, tools and techniques that are required in my career and putting these to use in real world situations. I also enjoyed meeting some of the executives. Hearing them share their internship and career experiences resonates with me.

What I wish was different

Chubb didn't provide housing, the commute from New York City to Whitehouse is very difficult, sometimes taking longer than 3 hours. I eventually sought lodging nearby and made lemonade.

Advice

Forgive my bias, but I learnt far more than I ever thought I would. The assignments I tackled were the ones my boss would be taking on. If you ever want a more hands on internship, Chubb is the place for you.
