Woodrow Wilson High School, TX
Invest introduced me to the insurance industry and all the different careers available. This fantastic program gave me several opportunities, including a paid internship at Bibby Brilling & Associates. It started as a summer internship and turned into a part-time job during my senior year in high school.
Working at the agency taught me a lot about insurance and gave me a feel for an office environment. I acquired many skills that will be put to good use in college and my future career as an insurance producer. Having the opportunity to work for an insurance agency at a young age ignited my passion for insurance, and I have a better advantage starting out. And several role models gave me expert advice for my future.
I will definitely choose a career in insurance because of Invest. The program introduced me to the industry and opened the door to my career path. In fact, because of Invest , I decided to enroll at the University of North Texas to continue studying insurance, instead of entering the military.
I learned how essential insurance is. No one can function without it. Assets will always need to be insured. Knowing that insurance is there to restore you from a loss is such a comfort. I never thought about the importance of insurance until taking this class. I'm also surprised that many people in the industry did not originally start out pursuing a career in insurance. I’m getting a head start towards a brighter future.
