What do you wish you knew about your job when you first started out?
Insurance Broker in Moncton:
"That working hard does not always mean you get the best pay."
Ask as many questions as you can and never stop learning. Keep on top of your work.
Insurance Broker in Peterborough:
"Get your education."
This industry is hush hush about who makes what for salary. It's not discussed and not allowed to be discussed. Get your education right away CAIB or/and CIP if you think you are going to go the direction of Underwriting. Go for interviews at other brokerages to see their reaction to your salary request. Negotiation of your wage is the only way that you will get a salary increase, there is no pay scale so you never really know what you are shooting for. The stress is high and the expectations are high.
Insurance Broker in Kelowna:
Be a producer or a man as this occupancy is very much male dominated with respect to the higher paid positions.
