Why I Love Insurance: Teresa’s Story

 Insurance Nerds

Raise your hand if you set out with a career path in insurance? (My hands are by my side.) Many of us in the insurance industry did not plan on being here.

Frankly, the thought of insurance, let alone a career in it, did not even cross my mind until I saw a job posting for a claims position at an insurance carrier while studying for the NY Bar.

Needless to say, I applied for and got that job. Now, over ten years later, I am still in insurance. But, why did I apply for the claims job in the first place? What was so appealing about the position?

Growing up, I always had an affinity for business and law. In fact, in high school, I filled every elective class possible with anything even remotely related to business or law.

In college, I obtained an undergraduate degree in Business Management and, after graduating, began working at a large management consulting company.
Even though I liked consulting, I still had a desire to learn more about law with the goal of somehow “marrying” it with my business background.
