February Rocks Insurance Career Month!
GreatInsuranceJobs.com is very proud to be part of Insurance Careers Month which takes place for the entire month of February. The mission is simple yet life-changing for so many who find out that the insurance industry has tremendously rewarding careers. Our goal throughout the month is to provide some real-life interviews and stories from students who discovered the insurance industry.
If you are a student, the phrase “you don’t know what you don’t know” certainly pertains to you if you are not aware of the impressive careers in the insurance industry. Insurance Careers Months’ main goal is to help take the mystery out, so you consider a job in risk management, claims, underwriting, insurance technology (InsureTech) and so many other areas.
So, why should YOU make a career for yourself in the insurance industry? Sure, 25% of the industry is supposed to retire in the next three years creating all kinds of opportunity. It is also projected that over 300,000 positions will go unfilled (Pew Research Center) by 2020. Heck, the unemployment rate in the industry is 1.3%. This screams opportunity, but if you don’t know what careers make up the insurance industry, it doesn’t matter!

This is where Insurance Career Months can help. So many great organizations will be coming together to educate and present real inside information about careers in the insurance industry. GreatInsuranceJobs.com will join this movement with videos and podcasts from students who work in the insurance industry today share their journey. You will meet people like James Bowen who graduated college, worked in other industries that he thought were cool (technology, digital media) and by accident connected to the insurance industry. Just four years later, he is a regional supervisor with GEICO making over $80,000 a year...and loving it!
The funny thing is that so many articles are written about millennials (and now GenZ) alluding to the idea that they will only work for companies that make a social impact offer flexible work schedules (especially those with young families), fast career progression and opportunity to learn and grow, to name a few. The insurance industry and the many types of jobs types available give you an excellent platform for growth, stability, flexibility and future. What are you waiting for? After you do your research, you will know that the hidden jewel of jobs is found in this great industry!
