Build your career

Career and internship opportunities for university/college students

At Securian, we invest in people who want the opportunity to build a career they can be proud of. You are challenged to discover and develop talents that will help you – and the Company – excel. As one of the most highly rated financial institutions in the country, our culture is characterized by developing long term relationships of trust and doing what is right for our clients and our associates.

Finding a good fit

We model our hiring process on mutual selection. We are deliberate and comprehensive and want you to be, too. You are encouraged to interview, ask questions, and learn about us to determine if Securian is a good fit for you. As much as we want to ensure Company success, we want you to be in a place that will help further your career.

Learning doesn't stop when you graduate

Securian encourages associates to prepare for future responsibilities and career success by pursuing professional and educational opportunities. We offer an extensive on-site curriculum of industry programs and customized courses through our Training and Development department. Continued education is supported through our Tuition Reimbursement Plan.

Competitive compensation and more

With our size and financial strength, you'd expect a competitive compensation package. And you'd be right. Securian offers a benefits package designed to be competitive, equitable and flexible. We also understand that compensation goes beyond financial. Securian’s culture supports work-life balance, promotion from within, and a fair, principled working environment.

More than a summer job, our Summer Internship Program provides valuable hands-on experience, an opportunity to apply classroom learning to the business world and the chance for students and the Company to get acquainted. Internship opportunities are available in Information Technology, Actuarial and our Management Development Program, a customized career track for emerging leaders.

We look for candidates with proven academic success and effective communication skills, demonstrated leadership, analytical and problem-solving skills and abilities specific to an internship – the same qualities Securian seeks when interviewing candidates for full-time positions. We begin interviewing for internships in the fall and look for candidates to participate in the Summer Internship Program between their junior and senior years.
