Do you think i could get a insurance underwriting job?

I have bachelors degrees in risk mgmt/insurance and Banking. I also have an associates degree in economics. I am fresh out of college and just looking at some options. I could go the banking direction but i find insurance a little more interesting. I would like to be an insurance underwriter instead of an agent because agents tend to work on commission and i really dont want that right out of college. So what are my chances of landing an underwriting job straight out of college? Thanks

Most insurance companies that hire recent graduates, hire them at college job fairs. Keep in mind that it's been a very soft market for years, and not many insurers are hiring these days. It's going to be a tougher job market than traditionally, to break into.

It depends on where your knowledge lies, but an underwriter job sounds right for you to break into the field. Don't neccessarily limit yourself to companies, brokers use underwriters too. You will most likely start as an underwriting assistant and then will have the chance to work your way up.
