BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.

To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.

To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.

Millennials scoff at insurance careers

Reprints

Insurance does not rank very high among millennials as a career choice, according to a new study by Hartford Financial Services Group Inc.

“The Hartford's 2015 Millennial Leadership Survey” asked millennials to choose the three industries that would appeal most to them as a place to work from a list of 18.

Arts and entertainment came in first with a 40% approval rating, while insurance was next to last, with 4% approval rating. Insurance managed to beat out only wholesale trade and utilities, which tied for last at 3% approval each.

When asked to give reasons why they didn't want to work in insurance, 73% of the respondents said they thought insurance companies were “boring.” Fifty-one percent said they thought insurers “only care about making money,” and 39% said insurers “don't provide diverse job/career options.”
