I work as an insurance underwriter in the Houston, TX area and am curious as to what the average salary is for this position. So if this is your line of work or know someone who is, what is the average salary? The company I work for offers great benefits, paid vacation and PTO-health benefits and 401k but I think i'm getting stiffed on the salary considering my workload and job description. Any info is a big help!
How to become an Life Insurance Underwriter? What are the procedures to be followed?
I am currently looking for a position as insurance underwriter and, I admit, my job search skills do not amount to much more than sending resumes to advertised positions online, such as on Indeed or CareerBuilder.
I would like to take a more proactive approach, such as finding the heads of underwriting departments at insurance companies and emailing them directly.
The question is, how would I go about doing that? Do I just look up insurance companies in the Yellow Pages, then call every single one and ask for the underwriting department head's email? How would you go about compiling a list of target companies?
What does a typical day in the life of an insurance underwriter look like? I am considering this career path and would like some input.
I always thought that insurance underwriters in general analyze risk and assign appropriate premiums for that risk coverage but I have seen some positions (mainly P & C underwriting positions) where there is sales involved.
Casey Y. - thanks for the response; quick follow up question so then is all "sales" done with insurance agents and not retail customers
My company offered me a trainee position to be an insurance underwriter. What should I expect, and what should I really concentrate on? What are the pluses and minuses of the job?
Is there any software or websites that guide me through the process?
I am talking about not just their job description, but just what is their usual daily routine like?
(for anyone who knows)
How much money should it make?
I am making a career move and half way through my CIP (Chartered Insurance Professional). I hate dealing with irate customers. I love analyzing data and numbers. Can any one who works in insurance let me know if insurance underwriters enjoy their jobs and do they have to visit customers or work in an office?
What does this job do exactly (daily routine)?
What area does this job pay?
Why or why not? What's the job like? What are the people like, that you see on the job?
And I'm going to community college, so what courses would I need to take to be ready for transfer.
My SAT scores, if relevant, are 680 math and 650 reading, 690 writing. I've taken AP Calc and English.
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
Please explain the no. of exams to be written and the corresponding eligibility? Also detail about the basic requirements needed? What is the maximum duration to become an underwriter?
I am looking to advance in my current job & would like to know if there are any schools in Oklahoma City I could attend to become an underwriter? Thanks!!!
I wanted a view from the people who actually worked or know people who work in the area. Like for example people who work in customer service hate it even though the description is good. Whats it like in insurance?
Trying to get into the insurance filed and have seen on many job posting, some required licensing and/or courses required.
Need a nice list of possible jobs in business, tho planning to start my own but still need to work before starting my own.
I graduated from college with a bachelors of mathematics in spring of 06 and last year I taught as a high school teacher. I want to explore other career options but I am having trouble finding the right fit. I do not have a drivers lisencse so a job requireing internal travel is not an option for me at this point. Where can I go to find jobs with so little experience, no driving experience, a bachelors in math, and decent enough pay to make a living. (I am thinking about 35k a year or more).
I'm going to start a 4 year university in June, and i'm thinking i'll major in business. I was just wondering what jobs are available for someone with a bachelors in business.
I would really like to hear from a veteran underwriter. I just started a job in unsecured underwriting and trying to evaluate if its something I should do long-term and invest in. I want to know how far it will take me - $$ wise.
Hello my name is Tyler and I'm in high school looking to get involved in the life insurance industry, I have little to nothing knowledge about this industry but I am reading "The perfect storm" . I was wondering if I should go to college or anything else in depth or general really. Thank you and I'd really appreciate this.
