The insurance industry has provided me with a great career and so much more than I bargained for. I get to be challenged every single day at a job that I love. I have experienced upward mobility, work-life balance, and the chance to be part of an engaging culture with talented colleagues that truly care. Unfortunately, the insurance industry is struggling with a talent gap. The industry is not necessarily known as sexy or exciting, however, I know the insurance industry is most definitely NOT boring!
The insurance industry offers the career trifecta: it’s stable, rewarding and limitless. There are few professions where you are directly helping prepare and respond to some of life’s most difficult situations. I am excited about a grassroots effort by InsuranceCareersTrifecta.org whose mission is aimed at collectively spreading the word that insurance is the career trifecta. I encourage and challenge young adults to call me if you want to learn more about a successful and rewarding career in the insurance industry. Hope you enjoy Cathy’s Tuesday Tip! ~Cathy
February is National Insurance Careers Month!
Did you know nearly four million Baby Boomers nationwide are retiring each year? As a result, the insurance industry is facing a looming talent crisis. With nearly 400,000 open positions projected by 2020 and less than five percent of Millennials interested in working in insurance, the industry needs to come together to find a solution. Our industry, the insurance industry, must play an important role in addressing these challenges. “Our industry is at a critical juncture, with new risks fueled by rapidly evolving technology,” said Brian Duperreault of AIG. “It’s an exciting time to work in companies that help keep individuals, families, communities and governments safe. If a young person wants a purpose-driven career, he or she will find it in insurance.”
