When I first applied to Central I had been looking for a stable job with a grounded and experienced company. Although the labor market can be somewhat unpredictable with positions that exist in so many different areas, I knew I didn't just want to work anywhere; The company and the values were important to me.
When I arrived at my interview, I could not have been more impressed by the profound impact that Central had on his employees and in society. I was pleasantly surprised by the important role that this company played in so many lives and the culture and values that were so important to everyone who worked here.
When I was offered a position in the claims department of the Central Regional Office, I really didn't know what to expect from a completely unknown industry. Having stumbled across Central, I had recently moved back to my hometown of northwestern Ohio after living in a larger city for a few years working with food, customer service, retail, community services, sales, and banking. All my previous jobs have created professional skills that I now use every day.
As a staff claim for adjusters, I get the privilege of helping people who go through an unfortunate experience. I get to work one-on-one and show dedicated customer service to not only our customers but also to independent agents and other insurance partners. It is a great feeling to know that you are responsible for taking care of people when they need it most.
I had never imagined that all the steps in my career path would lead me to the insurance world. When I tell you which industry I work in, they expect me to sell insurance or work with numbers. While these roles are crucial for the insurance industry, there are so many different opportunities that help create space for almost everyone to call the insurance industry home. Insurance can offer you endless opportunities for personal growth and continued education, while providing a stable career. After all, insurance is something everyone needs.
While you may not have thought of a career in the insurance industry, I can say with certainty that it is a rewarding and opportunistic way to consider. I encourage you to explore the many opportunities and relationships the insurance has to offer.
