Insurance is heavily dependent on technology for day-to-day operations. IT professionals help develop and maintain the various technology functions necessary to keep agencies and companies operating at peak performance.
Technology specialists are heavily involved in developing new technologies used to predict losses, track customer data and help companies underwrite business.
Based on U.S. Department of Labor the average salary for computer support specialists is over $49,000 annually. Of course this varies by where you live, your work experience and how much passion you bring to your job!
