So how can you find the perfect-fit career in the insurance industry?
You may hear people say, “I stumbled into insurance.” After all, how many eight-year-olds dream of being insurance agents when they grow up? Maybe they began with a summer job as a receptionist or file clerk during high school or college or took an internship after college, and found their true calling. Additionally, there are lots of people who transition to insurance from banking, marketing, law, and medicine after working with us. (They know a good thing when they see it!) And now we’re seeing an influx of professionals from the IT and data science fields, bringing new perspectives on the status quo. What unites us is the desire to serve and protect our communities.
You’ll learn about the huge range of careers available within the insurance industry: agent, broker, customer service rep, claims adjuster, actuary, underwriter, risk manager, and more. That doesn’t even include the writers and graphic artists that create marketing materials or the IT professionals who create and protect the systems that keep our industry moving forward. Additionally, the insurance industry is in the midst of an unprecedented period of turnover. Baby Boomers, who occupy many leadership roles, are starting to think about the next season of their lives. The opportunities for a dynamic career, especially for those with an entrepreneurial bent, have never been greater!
