Working in the insurance industry can be extremely satisfying. Whether you are still looking for your first job or you are looking for a new set of challenges, this career path could be right for you. If you have ever wondered what you need to do to start working as an insurance agent, then you are in luck. We have the answers!
Do Some Research
First of all, you’ve got to do some research. Focus your research on the different types of careers that are available. It also helps you understand what you would have to do when you find a position that interests you. Explore company profiles and read up on those employees that are already on the job and what their experiences have been like.
Update Resume and Cover Letter
The next step is to update your resume. You’ll also want to update your cover letter. Review tips on how to craft your cover letter and brush up on how to revise your resume. If you need advice on how to submit your resume for an insurance job, well, that’s not a problem either. Once you know how to proceed, you can shine a light on your skills and experience that make you qualified to join this industry. Strengthening your candidacy increases the likelihood that you will be hired by the insurance company that you want to work for.
Begin the Certification Process
After you’ve completed the previous two steps, you should also begin the certification process. Credentials such as the Chartered Property and Casualty Underwriter (CPCU) and Certified Insurance Counselor (CIC) will pay huge dividends both now and in the future.
Prepare for the Job Interview
You’re finally ready for the last step. Once you’ve secured a job interview, you’ve got to prepare for it. You will have to pass a section based around behavior that shows off your skills along with your personality and disposition. Practice what your answers are – content and delivery are both crucial, so pay attention to how well you rehearse both of them.
A Customer Testimonial
We have a testimonial from a recent pleased customer. Our own William Fedo assisted Myron Euille of Long and Foster Companies, Inc. William helped Myron with an insurance claim for an MRI. Myron wrote in to say that William made the process very easy and less confusing, and he greatly appreciated the speed of service. Myron would definitely recommend MWE Partnership!
