Achievement Awards open doors for recipients.

Each year, GEICO not only recognizes and rewards students, but we also get to know them on a personal level. Our program isn't a transaction—it's an interaction—an introduction between us.

Meet Kirk and Anna! They are current GEICO associates who previously received Achievement Awards.

How My Achievement Award Made a Difference

As a college student, I thought I was destined to go into consulting or healthcare. Then the dean of my business school recommended that I apply for a GEICO Achievement Award.

Quite frankly, I didn't think I'd be selected, as I knew nothing about GEICO or insurance. To my surprise, I not only received the award, but I was also offered an internship during my senior year.

It was then that I realized how great GEICO was. I learned about the organization and got to know many wonderful people. The internship gave me a very good idea of the many career opportunities in insurance and ultimately helped me pick GEICO as my employer of choice.

Today, I am an officer in the company overseeing our boat operations. This all would not have happened if it wasn't for the GEICO Achievement Award Program. It opened my eyes to a world of opportunities!

How My Achievement Award Made a Difference

I heard about GEICO's Achievement Award from my business school. After learning more about the program and seeing that I qualified, I called my parents and they encouraged me to apply. When I found out that I was chosen, I felt extremely honored.

The award money helped me tremendously during my senior year. I used most of it to pay for books and the rest went toward tuition. The company also hosted a dinner on campus to present me with the award. It was there that I met several GEICO associates and heard more about the company and its career opportunities.

The next fall, when I was applying for jobs, the application process with GEICO was exciting and enjoyable, as I had already made personal connections. Today, I am a Liability Director in GEICO's Lakeland, Florida office. I am grateful that I was a recipient of the Achievement Award and I am proud to call GEICO my employer.
