Why Choose a Career in Insurance?
Insurance is firmly one of the backbones of the world’s economies. Insurance is one of the most essential and diverse industries in the US. It has been around for centuries and has proven to be a nearly recession proof industry. There is never a time when people do not need insurance and protection for their lives and assets. As long as people continue to need medical care, drive cars, own homes, or run businesses, insurance will be there!
Here are some other great factors to consider when choosing a career in insurance:
A major hurdle faced by every industry, especially the insurance industry is the shrinking pool of available sales talent. With an overwhelming failure rate of over 94%, the churn rate within the insurance industry is staggering.
The massive failure rate and the hemorrhaging of talent can be attributed to the lack of effective resources available to agency owners, to quickly train competent staff members in the art of sales. Further, there is also a lack of a job-ready talent pool, specifically in the insurance producer or sales positions available to the agencies.
This course addresses the skill gaps that exist in the insurance industry by providing a core, foundational understanding of sales, advanced sales conversion optimization strategies, productivity planning, and an overview of technologies expected to be utilized in today’s insurance market.
