We at Business Insurance are excited to present the first annual Career Connection - A Virtual Career Fair for the Next Generation of Insurance Professionals in partnership with Gamma Iota Sigma, to educate students and job seekers about exciting opportunities in the commercial insurance market, and to help companies in the insurance industry more effectively engage with the next generation to showcase their profession and their company.
Insurers, brokers, claims managers and other insurance-related employers often find themselves competing for the best college students with other professions and industries that may be viewed more positively by some job seekers. And the insurance industry's future is at stake in this competition for talent.
The virtual career fair format is a convenient and engaging way to educate and introduce college students and relevant entry-level job-seekers to the current opportunities and career paths in the commercial insurance industry. The online format allows students to network with potential employers and other job seekers, and to learn about prospective employers and what they are seeking in candidates.
The virtual career fair also will help commercial insurance employers promote themselves, share information about careers in their specialized fields, and connect with potential interns and job applicants for summer 2014.
We look forward to connecting with you at this important virtual conference and helping showcase career opportunities in the insurance industry and giving participating employers and edge as they compete to attract and hire the best talent today.
