All Black helps AIG target bright young things
Published 20/04/2016 | 02:30
One of the world's largest insurance companies AIG has launched a new fellowship programme targeted at Ireland's so called millennials.
Successful applicants will earn €6,000 over a two-month period working at the company.
AIG is offering four separate fellowships in areas including front end technology development, social, partnerships, and data.
The term millennial generally refers to those born after 1980 and up to the year 2000, though the AIG scheme is likely to appeal to those at the younger end of the range who are not yet established in work.
The fellowships will be awarded to the winners of the 'GenWhy' competition.
GenWhy is the first competition of its kind run by AIG. Applicants are asked to submit ideas that help the company meet the requirements of millennials.
Amongst the categories of the competition is a 'partnerships' section, which encourages applicants to think of companies AIG can partner with to attract customers.
Another category of the competition is seeking out the best ways to use social media to interact with customers.
A total of up to 40 applicants will be selected to attend the GenWhy summit at AIG's Dublin offices in June.
