Video: Young People In Insurance
The Insurance Information Institute’s (I.I.I.’s) new video, “1: Your Career in Insurance,” highlights the unconventional stories of young professionals who are finding their niche in the insurance industry. The video also demonstrates how a new generation can earn, learn and grow in this exciting and evolving career field. It was released in advance of the final week of 2019’s Insurance Careers Month.
The U.S. insurance industry employed 2.6 million Americans as of 2016, according to the U.S. Department of Labor. “In insurance, I get to make communities safer and more resilient every day,” says Amir, one of the voices in the video. She is a young insurance worker who is passionate about volunteerism and wanted a career that could have a positive impact on society.
Meanwhile, Nicole, another featured voice, explains how she dreamed of being an FBI agent as a child, then studied criminology in college and later received a master’s degree in education. Today, she works for an insurance company, where she creates learning programs “to help colleagues grow and develop skills to pursue their own passions,” Nicole explains. Watch the video here.
