There is More to an Insurance Career than Selling Investment Products

Contrary to common notion, a career in the insurance industry is actually one that leads to exciting prospects. The career prospects for jobs in insurance can be considered to be bright, which means that successful insurance job seekers can look forward to a fairly fruitful work-life in the future. The thing with the insurance industry is that it'll not only teach you to become a sociable careerman but also hand you different sets of skills that you can use in your future career endeavors. This is because the industry's all about overcoming challenges. "You have to work hard and not be afraid to overcome challenges and rejections. It’s also important to have strength of mind to focus on achieving your goals", says Colin Ong, Chairman of Advisors’ Clique.

Insurance jobs also offer the flexibility of time, and yet not compromise on the pay. Consultants, for instance, are free to organize their working hours as long as they go by their quota. Gloria Ong, an NTUC Income Financial Consultant, tells us why she likes her job a lot, "being able to spend quality time with my family while also having a professional career gives me a great sense of satisfaction and achievement."

An insurance career is very fulfilling as well. It allows you to do social work from 9-5, 5 days a week, but with pay. Yee Siew Eng, Human Resources Director of Prudential Singapore tells JobsDB Singapore in an interview, "The beauty of this career is that you can really get tangible and intangible rewards that are limitless."
