The Top 3 Reasons to Explore a Career in Insurance

By Pekin Insurance · Dec 7, 2020 ·0 min read

February is Insurance Careers Month. As we celebrate our hard workers, we want to spotlight the opportunities provided by this industry.

You might ask why you should choose a professional path in insurance. Find the top 3 reasons below!

Industry Growth

The insurance field remains stable, even as it evolves. As of December 2018, the reported unemployment rate in this industry was down to 1%.

Insurance companies grow with advances in technology. This creates new opportunities for automating processes, creating machine learning models, and using data analytics.

At Pekin Insurance, we’ve implemented new technological systems that create new positions and change the way we do business. 

Career Opportunities

Insurance is good for anyone who wants a strong career path and growth.

At Pekin Insurance, we encourage continuous learning and financially support employees who earn designations such as the Associate in General Insurance (AINS). You don’t need insurance degrees or designations to qualify for a lot of our open jobs, though.

We look for traditional talent with experience in underwriting, claims, sales, and actuarial positions, but we also offer a variety of opportunities in:

  • Accounting
  • Human resources
  • Information technology
  • Marketing
  • And more


Finding Purpose

Regardless of your role in the company, you work toward the common goal of serving customers in need. This is a good place for you if you want work that’s more than work.

Think about how it feels to pay a claim for an insured recovering from a natural disaster. We want you to feel a sense of purpose because your skills benefit a cause.

Pekin Insurance has provided great service to our insureds for almost 100 years—now that’s purpose!
