What is National Insurance Careers Month?
You might be wondering what the significance of the month of February is. It has been designated as National Insurance Careers Month by the industry to share its pride for the industry and encourage others to consider a career in insurance. This is also a time to recognize our employees and the work they do.
The insurance industry offers a wide variety of careers from IT, marketing and sales to claim, finance and underwriting.
Here are a few examples of specific jobs within each of these areas:
- Sales positions can be split into two main categories: external (salespeople who sell insurance policies to individuals) and internal (salespeople who sell services like training courses).
- IT roles include software development and management or network engineering.
- Marketing roles involve understanding customer needs and creating effective campaigns to meet those needs. They might include working as an account manager or developing new products for customers.
Where to Start
A career in insurance can begin with an internship during college or a summer break. Many companies have internships that provide exposure to different areas of their business.
Internships are a great way to get a feel for the industry and company before making a commitment. Internships can be paid or unpaid, full or part time, and take place during college or summer breaks.
Interns help with day-to-day tasks related to their field of study and receive mentorship from experts in their fields. These individuals can offer advice on how best to move forward after graduation or provide insight into what it means to work at an insurance company like yours!
