Picture this: young job seekers spent their mornings flipping through local newspapers, combing its pages for new listings and eagerly scanning the copy for responsibilities and requirements to which they were a match. When intrigued, they would package their resumes neatly with a cover letter and drop it in the mail and then patiently wait to be called for an interview. Furthermore, it was not uncommon to be in the dark about an employer until the day of the interview. Employers, on the other hand, were limited to paying for help wanted ads to attract candidates; and until resumes started rolling in, they were limited to internal candidates and referral lists.

Today’s insurance industry is a passive candidate-driven market. As increasing retirement rates and the widening skills gap force organizations to continuously hire, workers feel empowered to switch jobs for a raise in pay. In fact, 2.7 percent of people in the private sector voluntarily left their jobs this May, the highest level since 2001, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Employees know job-hopping is effective, too. The bureau reported last month that real wages have remained unchanged for all employees since June last year, even though the overall unemployment rate has significantly decreased.
