Some of the best insurance agents I know love their careers partly because of the exciting rush that comes with helping customers purchase policies that best fit their needs, which then can help them in difficult times. The agents also love the control they have over their own schedule and their virtually unlimited income potential.
Don’t forget, careers in the insurance industry are not restricted to sales. There is a massive support system that goes behind the marketing, sale, delivery and pay out of insurance policies. Meaningful careers have been made in this industry in marketing, claims, underwriting, public relations, human resources and more.
And the great news? Along with these plusses comes the fact that the insurance industry is relatively stable, so these careers should be around for a long time. To me, stability means being able to focus on my career and long term goals and not worrying about whether or not my company will even exist years from now.
