About the Pitch Competition

If you’re creative, analytical, and a great problem solver, then this Pitch Competition is for you! TalentEgg, Career Connections and the Insurance Institute are hosting a pitch competition focused on dynamic and innovative ways that we can inspire and empower more post-secondary students to connect to a career in insurance. You do not need to have insurance knowledge or experience to participate. This is a chance for you to showcase your skills to top insurance employers while working on a real-world problem!

Here's how it works in 3 easy steps

The pitch competition is open to current post-secondary students or grads, as individuals or teams of up to three people.

Step 1

Each participant (including members of any teams) will register by uploading his or her resume and recording a 30-second to 1-minute video introduction to their TalentEgg profile. This will help give us a sense of your personality, skills, education, and experience to date. You can create your TalentEgg profile by registering for free, or if you’re already a TalentEgg user, by logging into your account and updating your profile to record your video introduction and upload your resume.

IN ORDER TO QUALIFY YOU MUST INCLUDE THE HASHTAG #CAREERCONNECTIONS in the keyword section of your profile so we can find you!

Step 2

You will then be contacted via email and invited to submit a 1-page summary that details your ideas and solutions. You DO NOT need to have insurance industry knowledge or experience to participate. If you are part of a team, make sure your summary includes the names of all of the team members.

Step 3

The Top 5 individuals/teams selected from the 1-page submission will then need to be ready with a 5-minute pitch to present to leading insurance professionals during the Live Video Pitch Round on May 14. Immediately following the pitch, you will engage in a 5-minute Q&A with the judging panel.

THE TOP 3 WINNERS WILL BE ANNOUNCED VIA SOCIAL MEDIA ALONG WITH THEIR PITCHES!

BONUS:

Your resume and video introduction will be shared with leading insurance industry employers and available to all TalentEgg employer partners who access the Candidate Video Showcase platform.
