Career Choice:

Have you ever thought about a career in Insurance after graduation?


Are you are the type of person, who smiles when they greet the customer, or says hello and welcomes the ones you already know? Do you intuitively ask and check to ensure the customer has what they need? Do you ask and understand what might be important to the customer and feel an obligation to ask and ensure the customer understands choices or options? Are you the type of person that follows up, makes notes, and you feel a sense of service to the customer to ensure what was promised is delivered on time and correctly?

Are you the type of person that knows that by doing a job well is a journey and you want to effectively convey information to the customer in an effective manner?
