Securian Financial

Engineering Analyst Intern

June - August 2021 • Saint Paul, MN

What I liked

I liked the community that was within the intern cohort. Also, all of the associates were there to help me succeed and learn.

What I wish was different

The ability to go to the office more often.

Advice

Don't be afraid to ask questions. Your manager/mentor will not judge, and it is for your benefit.

Data Science Intern

May - August 2020 • Saint Paul, MN

What I liked

I really enjoyed the group of individuals I got the opportunity to work with. I learned a lot about not only what the data science field really looks like but also how the corporate hierarchy works. They also provided us with the full internship and the equipment we needed for it.

What I wish was different

I wish we had been in-person. I found it difficult to work when I was home alone, and Securian did their best, but I also would have enjoyed being able to dress for the job and feel like I am actually in a corporate position versus just sitting at a computer all day alone in my house.

Advice

Apply for it! Securian is a wonderful company that people would be lucky to work for. I would suggest this to anyone who is at all interested in learning more about data science or data engineering or any other career path at all! They had a lot of different types of internships.

FP&A Intern

May - August 2019 • Saint Paul, MN

What I liked

It was a friendly environment where I never felt out of place with my team. They gave me a wide array of projects to give me a well-rounded internship within all the aspects of FP&A that I was interested in. Also, they made it easy for me to connect with fellow interns and get involved with events!

What I wish was different

Advice

I was nervous about heading up to the twin cities by myself and not knowing anyone - if anyone else is considering going out of state... DO IT! At the worst, it is 3 months; best case scenario, you love it!

Management Development Intern

May - August 2019 • Saint Paul, MN

What I liked

Had a lot of autonomy, got to meet so many different associates from all levels throughout the company, there were a lot of CSB/SJU alumni who I was able to meet and work with, I learned many different skills throughout many different projects, didn't have repetitive, boring, or monotonous work. The people at Securian were amazing and this program is great too!

What I wish was different

There was nothing I wish had been different besides easier parking options.

Advice

Just be yourself and be down to earth, authenticity and genuineness goes a long way.
