As fulfilling as it is on multiple levels, a career in insurance is not one that most young people intentionally pursue. Ask anyone who has spent more than a few years in the industry and he or she will tell you that they fell into it, but that they truly enjoy it. Why is this the case?? Largely because college students are not exposed to the wide variety of potential career options within the insurance industry. When I was a senior in college and was conducting on-campus interviews with potential employers, I avoided the insurance companies coming on campus. The reason was….I thought they were looking for sales people. I had no interest in selling insurance. What I didn’t know, however, was the vast opportunities the industry actually holds for those coming out of college.
