The insurance industry in the US is a massive market, with thousands of companies and trillions of dollars in policies sold each year. This creates numerous job opportunities for individuals interested in the industry.
There are nearly 6,000 insurance companies in the United States who sell everything from health insurance to long term care insurance to homeowners and rental insurance. All told, people bought more than $1.4 trillion worth of policies in 2021, according to Zippia.com.
In recent years, insurance companies have increasingly embraced remote work. Companies like Progressive Insurance and Allstate Insurance have dedicated resources and support for their work-from-home employees. With Employee Resource Groups and remote recruiting areas, these companies prioritize the success and advancement of their remote workforce. This trend was accelerated by the pandemic and remains strong in the insurance industry, even as some companies have called employees back to the office.
One of the nicest perks to working for a large insurance company is that the market, as a whole, has plenty of experience with remote employees.
