Why Insurance?

A Changing Workforce

There’s never been a better time to consider a career in insurance. The insurance industry is growing, but the current workforce is also aging, opening positions for the next generation of professionals.

Even with a steady stream of college graduates with insurance-related degrees, the influx of fresh talent isn’t enough to meet growing industry demand. This talent gap creates an opportunity for those considering a career change, as well as veterans pursuing a business career. 

More than half of insurance professionals are projected to retire by 2025, creating ample opportunities for entry and career advancement!
