AUSTIN, TX – February 12, 2015 – My Career Advancement website is now up and running for those who want to grow their career or explore the insurance and risk management industry with aspirations to match their strengths and interests to the needs of recruiters and employers. Further, by matching those strengths and interests, they gain the knowledge to plot a meaningful educational program in support of their choices. This comprehensive and practical look at opportunities for advancement or hire covers these important topics:
• Learning About the Industry
• Creating Your Career Plan
• Exploring Job Profiles
• Comparing Employer Types
• Getting a Practical Education
• Growing Your Network
• Listening to Insurance Career Stories
The intent of the site is to provide a central hub for creating a personal Career Profile—for the career the candidate is seeking or intending to improve. A fillable, savable PDF document steps participants through discovering their personality type, identifying their interests and skills, and exploring their workplace needs and values. Career seekers and developers can compare their profiles against key industry job profiles and build an action plan to advance their present career.
The My Career Advancement site also links to the Disabled Veterans Insurance Careers (DVIC) site, a nonprofit organization with the mission to train and generate meaningful employment opportunities for physically disabled veterans. Funding from the Veterans Administration is available for this valuable training.
A final link directs veterans and others to the Careers for Life website. The program is co-sponsored with Florida State University and offers a variety of educational opportunities including CIC, CRM, and CISR. FSU is still taking Careers for Life registrations for the Spring 2015 semester. All of these practical websites are sponsored or endorsed by The National Alliance for Insurance Education & Research.
