Milestones

Milestones

My road in life has been direct.
Throughout school, I was very interested in math so that is where I always wanted to focus.
I was heavily involved in sports throughout my entire life so teamwork is very important to me.
I've always had that natural born leadership instinct that sometimes worked in my favor and sometimes blew up in my face.
I decided to pursue a 'business' college due to my interest in math, which I knew would help me in a business-related field.
I started off as an accounting major and realized the middle of my sophomore year that just because something came natural to me, doesn't mean that it would be the best career move for me.
I took an aptitude test to see where my skills were and what type of jobs best fit my skills/interests. That led me to my two biggest strengths: analytical abilities and interpersonal skills.
I interned at Travelers throughout college and both of my parents work in the insurance industry. Insurance (although stereotyped) interested me due to the job stability.
From interning and starting a career, I've made connections and learned more about where I would fit best. Those led me to my current role where both my analytical and interpersonal skills are used.

Day to Day

My typical day changes every single day I come into the office, which is really exciting. I am responsible for my own book of business, so I have to prioritize what my day looks like depending on what needs to get done. This includes managing performance goals, developing/maintaining relationships with our business partners, working with a variety of different business units within our company, etc. It is my responsibility to make sure that my book of business is up to standards.

Skills & Qualities Beyond School

For each individual account I handle, there is an estimated 25+ boxes that need to get checked off. On average, I handle 50+ accounts at a time and they are all in different stages of the check list. Managing all of those accounts, with all of those tasks, and all of the timelines takes organization to ensure success. Relationship building/nurturing is also crucial due to the job being client facing.

Advice for Getting Started

Here's the first step for college students

Networking, apply for internships - each insurance company is relatively similar yet different in many ways. I would talk to as many people and try as many things as possible to get a better understanding of what is important to you and what appeals to you.
