Do currently have a job that doesn't excite you? Do you dread going to work every day? Do you view it as a way to survive rather than a way to thrive? Would you like to have more say in your pay?
If the answer to any of these is yes, you may want to take a look at a career in the insurance industry. There are many different career paths you can take within the broad spectrum of insurance. Insurance producer (agent/broker), insurance adjuster, underwriter, rater, clerical positions, and support staff for all of the above.
Insurance is never going away and even when the economy goes up and down, we all have to consider insurance (auto, home, business, life, health, etc). Insurance is here to stay and there will always be opportunities for a motivated individual.
Do you have a desire to own your own business someday? There are ample opportunities within the insurance industry for people to own their own agency or adjusting firm as well.
Finally, this is one of the last true professions that do not require one to complete a college degree before they can begin their professional career. 50 years ago the insurance agent was not considered to be a professional and not held to many standards, but that has changed in the last 25 years and insurance professionals are recognized as such (and don't forget, held to professional standards) as they ought to be.
