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”.

What do you know now that you wish you knew at 18?

I would have tried to get more experience on the carrier side. Since I’ve worked on the brokerage side, I think that having experience in both would be very beneficial.
