Starting out in the insurance industry can feel like navigating a maze, but Ashley Heline, AVP Marketing and Producer Management, shares a few tips on finding your path, courtesy of Insurance Insider.
- Embrace opportunities amid the industry talent shortage. “The talent shortage is creating opportunities for the next generation of brokers,” notes Heline. Consider where there are gaps at your current employer and how you can fill them. You may find a golden opportunity to chart your own unique career path.
- Use the 1, 3, 5 method to plan your next step. Heline advises a practical approach to career planning. “I like to always think about a one-, three- and five-year plan. Where do you want to be a year from now, three years from now, five years from now?” she asks. By picturing where you want to be in the future, you can reverse engineer the path that will take you there.
- Unlock your potential through networking. Ascend With Argo, a learning resource for early career professionals in insurance, is a great way to learn skills that will serve you throughout your career. But Heline says the connections it makes between colleagues are perhaps even more valuable. “Ascend with Argo not only offers education but opens doors to crucial relationships, paving the way for lasting success,” explains Heline.
