MyPath, the collaborative insurance industry effort to attract the next generation of talented professionals, announced today that 100 of the world’s leading insurance and risk organizations have now joined the initiative.
This milestone is the latest example of the overwhelming industry support for the initiative since it launched in October 2014. So far, MyPath has reached millions of students and young professionals with the message that limitless career opportunities are available in the risk and insurance industry.
MyPath is powered by The Institutes and their affiliates—The Griffith Insurance Education Foundation, the CPCU Society and the CPCU-Loman Education Foundation—and its partners now include many of the world’s foremost insurance companies, brokerages, agencies, and associations, as well as colleges, universities and other stakeholders. As partners in the MyPath initiative, organizations post internship and scholarship opportunities, share engaging content and tell their stories on http://www.InsureMyPath.org.
“This milestone highlights the widespread support for using a unified voice to attract the industry’s next generation of leaders,” said Jason Terrell of The Institutes. “The MyPath partner organizations have recognized that, by working together to promote our career opportunities, we can successfully reach the next generation of insurance professionals. We look forward to seeing our partnerships and industry engagement grow as we continue to roll out future phases of MyPath.”
The United States insurance industry contributes more than $420 billion to the country’s gross domestic product (GDP) and employs more than 2.6 million people in stable, rewarding and meaningful careers. Over the next several years, organizations plan to fill more than half a million positions, and MyPath was created to make young people aware of those opportunities.
To date, MyPath partners have provided hundreds of internship and scholarship opportunities that have been viewed by hundreds of thousands of visitors from around the globe. Other popular resources on the website include tools to help users connect their interests with careers and an educational and entertaining library of videos and original articles on everything from how college students can improve their job hunting tactics to which business books make good beach reads.
