We’re a collaborative initiative powered by The Institutes, a not-for-profit organization dedicated to educating and professionalizing the risk management and insurance industry. Our mission is to inform and inspire the industry’s next generation of employees.
Long story short, we launched in 2014 to address a disconnect. Careers like actuary and underwriter appear again and again on lists of the best jobs. People working as claims adjusters and insurance brokers say they love their jobs. But most high school and college students have never heard of these careers—and those who have very often have the wrong perception—so too few ever even consider them.
At the same time, companies in the risk management and insurance industry are hungry to hire talented young people. A wave of older insurance professionals will be retiring over the next several years, creating lots of openings and opportunities for young professionals to make names for themselves. And yet, companies are having trouble filling those openings.
So there are great jobs available, at great companies eager to hire people, and students just flat-out don’t know about them? That doesn’t seem right.
Well, we’re here to change that. Our site is filled with information and tools to help rising young professionals plan a career path in the risk management and insurance industry.
Take a look around. We hope you like what you see.
