Graduating college is a very thrilling yet overwhelming experience. I myself just graduated last spring, and the reality is still slowly sinking in. If you are a millennial reading this, you can probably relate. Or maybe you have a son or daughter who is closing in upon graduation. Whatever stage of life you’re in, you can probably understand the feelings and emotions associated with entering the “grown-up” world.
Deciding what to do for the rest of your life is not an easy task. You might find yourself asking a lot of questions: how do I know what I really want to do? Will I like what I’m doing? Will my career present opportunities for advancement? If these sound familiar, you may want to consider learning about a career in the insurance industry.
When I graduated college, I never thought I’d see myself in the insurance world. To be honest, I always thought it was a rather boring topic. But a job came along in the insurance industry and I took a chance on it. Here I am, seven months later and happy I said “yes” to the offer.
Don’t get me wrong; I don’t wake up every morning all giddy and bushy-tailed, just waiting to rush off to work. But what I do enjoy about coming to work is the mental satisfaction of having made it to where I am. I work in an ever-changing industry that is constantly forcing me to do my best and to continue to increase my knowledge. I know that when I come to work, my company truly values my efforts and makes great strides to help me grow professionally.
Insurance can be a very rewarding career. By furthering your knowledge to keep up with industry trends, you are making yourself more marketable as a professional, thus opening the door to promotions. A great thing about the industry is that there are many facets; if you’re not fond of a particular position, it’s fairly easy to transfer into a role more suitable to your skill set. If you’re looking for a career that comes with endless opportunities, this is it!
I’ll admit, the insurance industry is very complex, but with the dedication of my coworkers and managers, I feel that I’m learning very quickly. So if you’re looking for that career that will value you and push you to be your best, I beg you to give this industry a shot. If anything, you’ll gain useful knowledge that can help you in your own pursuits. This industry truly empowers you to strive for greatness and can make for a very rewarding career!
