Interns - Munich Re

"A network you can count on"

Annelene Seibert worked as an intern at Munich Re while earning her degree in mathematics. Since directly joining the company, she has developed software tools for calculating premiums in her position as actuary.

“When I attended a recruiting event a few years ago, I had no idea that this day would decisively shape my future career path. That is when I got to know Munich Re and since then have charted an unwavering course towards my career objectives. After an internship in 2009, I was directly admitted to the ReMember programme. This was an impressive distinction for my performance and the ideal springboard for all career decisions to come. Through the contacts I had made during my internship, I learned about an opening because at Munich Re, you are always in touch within a personal environment. Upon completing my studies, I received an immediate offer for direct entry.

“This is the perfect job for me: after all, the reinsurance business offers mathematicians an exciting range of employment possibilities. For instance, I further developed the programmes for calculating premiums for covering fire or construction risks depending on the client’s needs – a task closely linked to IT topics. The most exciting part of my work is using mathematical formulas to map economic realities such as fire prevention measures, probabilities of storm damages or changes in legal frameworks. If we manage to improve calculations, then our insurance products can be better adapted to individual cases. With topics of this complexity, regularly training the users of our programmes with our know-how is a matter of course. I am particularly proud of the fact that my colleagues are able to learn from me during the training courses. In a group of companies with our level of internationalism and of these dimensions, this means taking on a certain amount of global responsibility.”
