Independent insurance agency principals know all too well the difficulty in attracting and retaining qualified, motivated employees in an industry not necessarily known as sexy or exciting. A quality internship program can be a great way to attract bright, ambitious young people to your agency – and identify those you want to keep for the long term – at a far lower cost than the typical recruiting, hiring, training, and turnover cycle. An internship usually is a student’s first look at the workplace. It can be a springboard to meaningful employment in a field of interest for the student!
The InVEST Agency Internship Guide will walk you through the important elements of internships – including issues of compensation, credit, and legal implications – and provide you with a framework for developing your own intern program.
InVEST is a national program whose mission is to educate, prepare and attract diverse new talent to the insurance industry.
