An internship with Securian Financial means an opportunity to create meaningful connections with established associates and fellow interns while exploring professional development in your field of study.  Our interns are connected to work that matters, helping to drive and deliver value for our customers with the support of great Securian team members at your side.  You’ll have the opportunity to interact with company leaders and learn from their career stories as well as get to know more about who we are as a company and the things we value – like our commitment to community through hands-on volunteer activities.

At Securian, supportive leaders facilitate an environment where interns are provided mentoring and learning resources to acclimate them into the workspace.  Teams work collaboratively to achieve milestones and improvements.  Personal growth and development opportunities are prioritized and recognized.  We encourage and celebrate involvement in Associate Resource Groups around various Diversity & Inclusion initiatives.
