In honor of insurance careers month, the experts at Grange Insurance Association wanted to take a moment to highlight the many perks of insurance industry jobs. Here’s why you should include insurance careers in your job search.
Whether you’re looking for an entry-level insurance job or something at the executive level, you’ll find a wide range of insurance industry jobs perfect for wherever you’re at in your career. While many people think of customer service and sales positions when they think of insurance jobs, there are plenty of insurance careers for all personality types. Underwriters, for example, work to analyze policies and determine eligibility while actuaries calculate appropriate rate for risk characteristics. There are also opportunities for web developers, IT professionals, marketers, accountants, HR professionals, and managers. Whatever your background, it’s likely you’ll be able to find a job that utilizes your past experience while enhancing your skills.
Working in the insurance industry often means helping people at the worst moments of their lives. Whether it’s a car accident, a house fire, a natural disaster, or a robbery, people turn to their insurance team at their most vulnerable moments and the work you do can tangibly make their life better during their lowest times.
While the insurance industry may get a bad rap in popular culture, it’s probably not what you’re imagining. Not only are you doing meaningful work that genuinely helps people, but there’s no “typical day” in the insurance industry. From new clients to new technology creating new risks, each day will bring a whole new set of challenges.
Insurance dates back to the 14th century and it’s not going away any time soon. In fact, in the US alone, nearly 3 million people currently work in the insurance industry. It’s also projected that 50% of the insurance workforce will retire by 2028, which means even more job opportunity in the field.
If diversity is important to you, you’ll be happy to know that the insurance field is only growing more diverse. In addition to employing a large number of women, you’ll find a mix of introverts, extroverts, millennials, baby boomers, high school graduates, college graduates, and law school graduates, as well as individuals from a wide range of cultural and racial backgrounds.
