Co-op and internship program

We believe education can change the world.

At Grinnell Mutual, we’re constantly evolving through teamwork, research, and development. That goes not only for our current employees, but our future ones, too.

That's why we offer paid co-op and intern positions to help college students move from the classroom into the boardroom.

A co-op or internship position at Grinnell Mutual doesn’t mean fetching coffee and running errands. It means taking on exciting assignments and meaningful projects and networking with industry leaders. It means enjoying fun days and events with other co-ops and your team. It means not only mentorships, but friendships. That’s what our trusted relationships are all about.

If you’re an undergraduate who’s completed your sophomore or junior year let’s connect. Don’t worry whether your major is “insurance-y” — we’re more interested in your passion for learning and willingness to explore your options.  Check us out — you could be part of our tomorrow.

Co-op and internship program frequently asked questions

Check out the list of frequently asked questions that we get about our co-op and internship program.

What’s the difference between co-ops and interns?

Just the timing. Co-op positions usually run from January to August or May to December. Internships are usually during the summer months.

How do I manage work and school at the same time?

Our co-op positions are meant to be flexible. For example, some co-ops take a semester off from school and work full-time, while others work a few days days a week while still in school. Your hiring manager will help design a schedule that works for you and the department.

Does Grinnell Mutual pay co-ops and interns?

Of course! We know that we can learn as much from you as you can learn from us. We offer competitive pay for both co-op positions and internships.

Can I get school credit?

Yes, but it depends on your school's requirements. Talk to your advisor to see what will make you eligible for credit, and then we can work with you from there!
