Expansion of the Insurance Industry
There have been people who have built rewarding careers in the general insurance industry. We have working professionals from other industries who started in insurance part-time and later made it into a full-time profession. There have been students who learned about insurance products, approached people from their natural market, and started earning.
Some housewives earn a monthly income of Rs. 30,000, are independent, and do extremely good for themselves. We have entrepreneurs who took up insurance as a side business since they already had an existing customer base. However, today they manage an annual portfolio of more than Rs. 3 crores. There are examples of people from other professions like teachers, doctors, drivers, lawyers, etc. who have come out with flying colors success. General insurance is everywhere and is for everyone.
Opportunity in General Insurance Industry
The general insurance industry is an essential, diverse and stable industry of all times. It has successfully withstood the COVID-19 era. It has consistently delivered year-on-year double-digit growth. The opportunity that the general insurance
industry offers, is humongous. This is the industry where you get paid for serving others, you are paid for doing good. An industry that allows you to build stronger alliances with people and secure their assets. Insurance is a noble profession to be in and make a difference in their lives by helping them in their dire hours of need.
Despite of such a positive side that the general insurance industry offers, people are still not keen on becoming a part of it. One of the key reasons that have been identified is the lack of awareness about career opportunities and limited knowledge about the insurance industry.
