You Are Welcome Here

Insurance is an industry that offers opportunities for employees with various skill sets beyond sales and customer service. From actuaries to data analysts, adjusters to customer experience managers, project managers to IT developers, lawyers, and nurses, there is a good chance there’s a position in which you can excel, regardless of your field of study.

Innovation and Ideas Wanted

The industry has undergone a transformational shift driven by technology and evolving customer expectations. All sectors are looking for employees with technical and critical thinking skills who can bring creative solutions to the table.

Stability in a Tough Economy

The essential nature of insurance makes it more stable than other fields during a recession. Consumers and businesses need protection from risk for their auto, home, or business — in good and bad times.

Opportunity for Development and Growth

Companies are looking for independent individuals who can work in a team setting. Employers are willing to give their employees the tools to learn and develop a career path with opportunities for advancement.

Committed to Diversity

Insurers are committed to having a diverse workforce that reflects their customer base and provides a more inclusive environment to engage and exchange ideas.

Hybrid Options

Many insurance jobs offer hybrid schedules to help employees create a better work-life balance.

Making a Difference

Insurance is a purpose-driven industry; there for its policyholders in their time of need. In addition, the industry has a legacy of philanthropic giving, issuing, on average more than half-billion dollars annually to non-profit organizations to help communities and enrich lives.
