Atlanta, Georgia (PRWEB) August 14, 2012
In contrast to many other fields, in which job growth has been far slower than desired, insurance employment is on track to increase at a healthy pace over the coming months and years.
Despite an increase in online insurance purchasing, experts expect that the demand for traditional insurance sales jobs will also increase. Many customers still prefer face-to-face interaction with a real person when looking for health, fire, life, or auto insurance, as it is far easier to ask questions and ensure that the customer is selecting the right policy for his or her situation.
The primary reason for the expected growth in insurance sales jobs is the steady improvement of the U.S. economy. Because virtually every industry has a fundamental need for insurance of some kind, a general growth in business means growth in demand for a variety of insurance agent jobs. This fact makes insurance employment one of the most promising fields for young people looking to enter the work force with confidence of winning a position quickly.
Fortunately for those seeking insurance agent jobs, the educational and experience requirements are minor compared to similarly paying jobs in other industries. In some states, including California, a college degree is not required if an applicant is able to pass the licensing exam without one. Experience at any level, from an internship to a paid position with an insurance brokerage, is very valuable for those looking for insurance sales jobs.
In addition to the traditional methods of seeking insurance jobs, young people are discovering that the social media, especially professional networks like LinkedIn, and online job search engines are often more effective ways to target and apply for ideal positions. With the likelihood of many new job seekers hoping to take advantage of the large number of insurance jobs available, it remains to be seen whether the expected high demand will match the supply of qualified potential insurance agents.
