Many military veterans in search of meaningful employment are finding the job market tough and searching for a job where they feel they can contribute may be tougher. If you’re hard-working, goal-oriented and motivated ‒ as most of the vets I’ve met are ‒ you may want to consider a career in insurance.
Here’s why: While many job markets have slowed hiring in recent years, insurance is one area that continues to grow and thrive. The Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts that employment of insurance sales agents and managers will grow 22 percent over the next few years. Pretty impressive, right?
Insurance sales and leadership positions with the right company can provide opportunity and a great career path with excellent financial rewards. Make no mistake ‒ insurance sales can be challenging, especially since many jobs are commission-based. However, for people with drive and good communication skills, insurance sales and sales leadership positions offer incredible opportunities for personal advancement and financial prosperity for your family while serving your community.
So if you’re still searching for a career that fits your interests, personality and skills, you may want to consider insurance sales. Here at Combined Insurance, we’re actively recruiting veterans to work as sales agents, recruiters, and in leadership positions as market directors and territory managers.
