Mutual of Omaha Learn and EarnFull story:
Hey students! Did you miss last week’s Learn and Earn with Mutual of Omaha in the Military & Veterans Success Center? Don’t worry! If you’re looking for internships, part-time, or full-time positions in a positive environment, then be sure to keep reading!
Internships at Mutual of Omaha open-up to applicants in September and run through mid-October for the summer months. However, there are non-traditional internships throughout the year in IT, finance, accounting, marketing, and more. Internship info and applications can be found online at mutualofomaha.com/careers. They accept 100-150 interns for their part-time and full-time positions with some being remote.
Benefits at Mutual of Omaha include medical, dental, paycheck, education reimbursement, maternity leave, and more. Education reimbursement is $5,250 per year with opportunities to move. More info can be found on the website! They do stretch assignments which give tasks that test capability and interests with employees and interns.
Don’t submit a “one size fits all” resume for internships and/or jobs. Mutual of Omaha looks for people who would work well in different cultures and are active in the community. To submit an application, build your profile first and you will hear back within 48 hours of submission with a yes or no email. If accepted, it depends on each manager whether you will be interviewed once or potentially more times.
The best advice given to students during this Learn and Earn Ove Lunch follows:
-the longevity of employees shows a lot about the company, it’s quality of job and environment, and benefits. One of the representative from Mutual of Omaha interviewed for this article says he’s been there for 37 years in 8 different positions and has 7 family members also working for Mutual of Omaha.
-there are quite a few technological changes happening through the company including cloud tech and other new technologies that enhance the company. So if these interest you, this could be a great fit for you and Mutual of Omaha!
Thanks for reading and we look forward to seeing you at our next Learn and Earn on November 6th with the United States Citizen and Immigration Services! Go Big Red!
