  • Lockton Kansas City will offer the Summer Associate Program during summer 2012. Paid internships are available primarily in the Commercial Insurance Division. Each intern is paired with a Performance Coach that helps to guide them through the course of the internship. The program is very "hands-on" with the intern being included in such activities as marketing, policy review, client renewal presentations and on-site client meetings. The purpose of the program is to give the intern the full experience of being an Account Manager in a Commercial Lines Brokerage. The internship will include a group project that culminates in a formal presentation to senior management.
  • Successful candidates for our program have shown balanced success in both academics and extracurricular activities. GPA requirement is 3.0 and involvement in a combination of sports, student government, college clubs, community service, and work is desired. Lockton also looks for leadership positions in these activities as an added plus. Strong to excellent communication skills are required as well. Lockton ideally looks for students entering their senior year but students beginning their junior year may be considered as well.

    Summer Associates will have students participating from local schools as well as Universities that offer degrees in Insurance and Risk Management. Interns get the opportunity to meet a variety of students from varying schools and programs.
