This post is part one in The Jacobson Group’s Insurance Careers Month 2020 video series. The series features our own Millennial bloggers providing their insider perspectives into why insurance is a great career choice and how to get started in the industry. We’re kicking off the series with sentiments from Kylee Lacson, assistant vice president and practice lead for Jacobson’s life team, in “Why Insurance?” This video was originally posted on our Jacobson Journal blog in 2018, but we thought Kylee’s insights were still so relevant that we should share them again. Learn about the ways insurance is changing, its many disruptors, and the exciting opportunities it presents for young professionals and recent grads.
