COLUMBUS, OH--(Marketwire - Nov 28, 2012) - Today, the Ohio Insurance Institute (OII), a trade association for the property/casualty insurance industry, launched www.InsuranceCareers.org, a new website dedicated to providing information on the variety of career opportunities within the insurance industry.
The OII's primary goal is to help Ohioans achieve a better understanding of insurance. To perpetuate this mission, InsuranceCareers.org is designed to educate and inform young adults about the insurance industry, as well as the multitude of career options that align with different professional aspirations and interests.
"From IT to sales and marketing, the insurance industry offers a wide array of careers that many young adults have yet to discover," said Dan Kelso, OII president. "Through InsuranceCareers.org, OII has created a resource that showcases a variety of career paths that the insurance industry offers."
InsuranceCareers.org Special Features
InsuranceCareers.org provides visitors with industry information, and a variety of tools and resources for students and educators. The Career Survey serves as a starting point for investigating what insurance positions match a student's career goals. The survey pinpoints specific interests and skills, guiding the prospect to a recommended career pathway(s). This is especially helpful for those who have never considered a career in insurance.
InsuranceCareers.org also offers video interviews with insurance professionals, job descriptions, recommended skills, educational requirements and facts related to featured career paths in the categories of human resources and training, marketing and communications, sales, technology, claims, administration, and underwriting and analysis.
"The career pathways featured on InsuranceCareers.org offer valuable information, including current average salaries, potential career paths with salary range estimates and job outlooks through 2020," Kelso added.
Additionally, through the Ask a Pro program, students can interact directly with insurance experts to ask questions, seek advice or request additional information.
OII invites you to visit the website often for additional videos and featured career pathways. You can also connect with InsuranceCareers.org on Twitter (@InsCareersOrg) and Facebook (InsuranceCareers.org).
