“Up Close, Remote and Personal: The Next Sales Generation,” LIMRA’s new report on the industry’s potential recruits, is a must-read for every company recruiter. It reports that potential recruits are looking for a job that provides them with four key ingredients: connections, influence, stability and variety -- all things a career in insurance can offer.
The report also shows that NAIFA is on the right track when it comes to giving young advisors what they need in their career. How does NAIFA help these Gen-Nexters build their careers in insurance and financial services?
NAIFA has been addressing the needs of those new to the industry for more than seven years with its Young Advisors Team (YAT) program. YAT groups around the country have been helping new and young advisors with their connections, helping them to establish their influence and giving them a sense of stability and variety.
Sessions and events at NAIFA’s Annual Career Conference and Annual Meeting sponsored by YAT also help foster the sense of community amongst these advisors and provide them with the knowledge they need.
In a marketplace where career uncertainty is the norm, NAIFA is the constant that the next generation is craving.
