Top Executives: The Future Of Insurance Jobs Is Bright
Some of the top people in the insurance business said during a recent conference that insurance jobs are on the rise.
Insurance Journal talked with several executives about insurance jobs as part of insurance careers month, which was February. They talked about a bright future, and the satisfactions of a career spent helping people. Here’s some of what they had to say.
Brian Duperreault, president and CEO, American International Group:
“I think we all find ourselves surprisingly in the insurance business. That’s just the nature of the beast. It’s a wonderful revelation. When you find out what this is really like, you had no idea.”
Dan Glaser, president and CEO, Marsh and McLennan:
“When I think about insurance, there are really two major functions. There’s a protection function to be sure, but there’s also an enabling function. Insurance offers freedom from the emotional and financial burden of loss but it also offers freedom for investment, innovation and the creation of value… It’s a very noble purpose.”
Greg Jacobson, co-chief executive officer, Jacobson Group:
“There are characteristics that are going to be important for the next generation of insurance professionals. Some of those are going to be creativity, problem solving, ability to develop people, ability to think critically, and to lead. All of these things are going to be required and none of them can be replaced by machines.”
Phoenix Insure is a leader in the industry when it comes to great insurance jobs.
Our Agents have multiple top carriers at their disposal, so finding the best plan is easy. Plus, you have all the latest tech to make sure to get the application process done without flaws!
Most of our agents enjoy a flexible work week and have goals of netting $2,000 a week or more.
Training our agents to get up to speed quickly is the highest priority of management with multiple training calls, one-on-one sessions with a proven manager and regional training schools.
Ideally, we seek out excellent communicators, self-starters, and great time managers with high moral character and professional demeanor. Having a state insurance license is nice but not required.
