What We Offer
For up to a year, you'll work side-by-side with our representatives and serve the people who mean the most to our organization – our customers.
This is so much more than your average internship. As an Agency Sales Intern, you'll get the real-world experience you need to be successful. Plus, you'll obtain your insurance licenses, learn about our products from some of our highest-performing representatives and grow your personal and professional network. Best of all, you'll have the opportunity to make a true impact in your community by helping people protect what they have and plan for the future.
What You Get with a #LifeAtCOUNTRY
Here at COUNTRY your pay is guaranteed, not just commissions. You can even earn extra cash with several intern contests throughout the year!
We have numerous success stories of our interns converting to full-time agents! This could be your chance to launch a successful business too.
You’ll receive a combo of on-the-job and formalized training. Upon your start date, you will get licensed, and the costs are completely covered by COUNTRY. You'll also work alongside others in the office to learn about what they do and how your job aligns. The best part? You’ll be assigned one or two representatives as mentors who will be available throughout your internship.
You’ll have the chance to interact with COUNTRY Financial employees throughout the organization. These relationships will help you develop professionally and offer you the chance to help our customers become more financially secure. You'll participate in community seminars and fundraising events, all while gaining insight into the day-to-day lives of our representatives.
