Jobs and Internships

Progressive Insurance

Description: We, at Progressive Insurance, are pleased to open our campus in Mayfield Village, OH again this year for a tour and presentations on our Accounting and Analyst intern programs as well as our Accounting Rotation and Analyst Development programs.  In the past few years, we found these events to be well received.  We plan to offer this opportunity on the following dates in 2017: March 31stand April 7th.  We hope that one or both of these dates will work for your school.

We are targeting graduate and undergraduate accounting majors (preferred minimum GPA 3.2) who are available for accounting internships starting 1/2018 or 5/2018 and are graduating December 2018 or May/June 2019. For our analyst opportunities, we are planning to fill summer internships for 2018 with candidates excelling in one of many quantitative majors such as accounting, economics, statistics, actuarial science or mathematics. I hope that you can forward this to the appropriate professors or career services staff to target students for our analyst program as well. Faculty and Career Services representatives are also encouraged to attend.

Sponsorship is not available for these positions. Progressive generally does not sponsor foreign national candidates for work authorization except for positions that in Progressive’s determination require highly specialized knowledge and for which candidate sponsorship is appropriate.

Students will have an opportunity to observe our corporate environment and tour one of our campuses. We will provide information about our accounting and analyst internships, our Accounting Rotation Program (ARP) and Analyst Development Program (ADP), as well as other career opportunities at Progressive that support these majors.  Current accounting/analyst interns or ARP/ADP members will also talk about their work at Progressive and answer student’s questions.

Students should select one of the Friday dates noted above. We elected to open both dates to provide students with more flexibility. We have scheduled these events from 11 a.m. - 3 p.m., lunch provided.  Please confirm your intention to participate by February 17th, and provide us with your contact person who will collect the RSVPs for our pre-planning and security access.
