Careers rarely develop the way we plan them. Our career path often takes many twists and turns, with particular events, choices and people influencing our direction.
We asked Karl Curran from Insurance to give some advice for people considering this job:
|I would highly recommend this job but I’d say to start taking insurance exams as soon as possible and get them done while you’re young.
I’d also recommend talking to as many people in the industry to see what area of insurance you want to go into i.e. Insurer, Broker, Loss Adjuster etc. – they’re very different!
