Michelle Jandola, Invest Grad & Account Manager

Michelle Jandola 2.jpg.png 
I took the Invest class as a Junior and I got a part-time job through my high school working at an independent agency doing clerical work and answering phones.

After graduating from college, I reached out to same agency and they offered me a full-time job specializing in insurance for boats and yachts. Ten years later, after building up a good “book of business" with my own clients, I decided to move on to the carrier side of the industry and try underwriting for marine insurance.

After starting a family, I returned to the agency side  this time learning commercial lines, becoming a CSA and working with condo associations. I really enjoyed my new role, eventually being promoted to an Account Manager an Account Manager and earning my CISR designation. I now work with six sales agents  developing and enhancing business with Condo Boards and Property Managers.

The best part of my job is working with a terrific staff at McGriff, where it feels like a “family" environment. And I even have an opportunity to work from home and raise my daughter at the same time.

I encourage young people to pursue a career in insurance. It's not just selling insurance. There are lots of different job areas like account management, loss prevention, risk control, underwriting, and technology.

It's a stable and reliable career – and everyone needs insurance. If an organized and business-minded person, account management is a good choice. And you don't necessarily need a college degree;  just the appropriate insurance license.
