2017 InVEST Scholarship Recipient
BEST Academy High School, GA
Braylon believes the InVEST program has been one of the best opportunities so far in his senior year. “I started off completely clueless about insurance, but the volunteers who came to our class were very energetic and patient as they introduced us to the industry.”
He says he learned a lot about how risk management works and the importance of developing a good work ethic. “The InVEST program made insurance interesting and showed us viable career options.” His interest peaked when several underwriters visited the class and described their jobs.
A human resources specialist from an insurance company later offered a resume writing workshop and conducted mock interviews. “We talked about dressing for success and the importance of developing good communications skills,” Braylon said.
Describing the InVEST program as “an extremely positive experience,” Braylon is now looking to major in either risk management or another related field in insurance.
