Are you aware of the career opportunities available in the insurance industry?
October 7, 2015 |
There’s never been a better time to consider a career in insurance. The industry is growing, but the current workforce is also aging, opening positions for the next generation of professionals. During the 2015 Ohio Insurance Education Day, sponsored by the Ohio Insurance Institute, it was revealed that 43% of the insurance industry is set to retire in the next few years. This translates into a vacancy of jobs, leaving room for a series of internal company shifts and new openings.
The influx of fresh talent isn’t enough to meet growing industry demand. This talent gap creates an opportunity for those considering a career change, as well as veterans pursuing a business career.
The insurance industry is one of the largest employers in Ohio, employing more than 100,000 workers at 236 insurance companies across the state. According to the Insurance Information Institute and the U.S. Department of Commerce, Ohio ranks seventh in the nation for its concentration of insurance employment.
