Claims Associate, Real Estate and Hospitality Industry Practice

"The Claims Associate program has been one of the most memorable parts of my career so far. Not only does it provide great learning opportunities, but it offers various perspectives from leaders at Chubb that I will turn to as I continue to advance in my career. One of the best learning opportunities came during the breakout sessions, where we had the chance to analyze policies with experienced adjusters. It gave us a chance to go through real life scenarios and analyze how a policy might be applied. The whole experience was invaluable."
