A career in insurance? Yes, please! There are many different types of jobs within the insurance industry. From the actuaries who help price our policies, to the agents who sell the policies, and the underwriters who work alongside the agents to lend their knowledge about risks, to the customer service representatives who answer client questions, and the claims professionals who help at the time of a loss; there are many rewarding career opportunities in insurance. Some will be in the office at a desk while others will be in the field visiting the clients. Whatever type of skill set you have, there is sure to be a fit within the insurance industry.
In February 2022, we will be offering two sessions, one virtual and one in person. These sessions are designed for high school and college students who are interested in learning more about the insurance industry but anyone who wants to learn more about the insurance industry is welcome to attend.
