“In fact, we found nine companies that indicated they will hire at least 2,000 employees in 2010, and 21 companies predicting they will hire more than 500 employees,” states Scott Kotroba, President and co-Founder of GreatInsuranceJobs.com. “The top insurance industry positions being hired in 2010 are insurance sales professionals, claims, underwriting, call center and IT. This is welcome news for anyone looking for an insurance job right now.”
GreatInsuranceJobs.com surveyed 131 insurance entities from across the United States by phone and asked them these questions and more. Combined, these 131 companies represent 377,321 employees, all of whom are based in the United States. The insurance sector employs 2.2 million people. This survey represents 17% of all insurance sector employees.
The majority of insurance jobs open are found at property and casualty carriers, insurance brokers and agencies, third party administrators and managing general agents. The insurance jobs types that have multiple openings include insurance sales professionals, customer service, call center, administration, claims, underwriting and IT. Other jobs currently open include actuaries, data modelers, nurse case managers, product developers, premium auditors and account executives.
“Companies like Liberty Mutual, Travelers and InSphere Insurance Solutions have many jobs right now,” says Kotroba. “But insurance HR departments are overworked, and are getting too many resumes for each open job. For jobseekers, finding a insurance job will still be challenging.”
