Trusted Choice - Illinois

You Are Here: InVest



InVEST is a free, classroom-to-career program designed to increase awareness of insurance industry careers among high school and college students. The opportunity for young people to launch into a lucrative insurance career is soaring with 60 percent of current insurance professionals over the age of 45 and looking to retire over the next 15 years. InVEST attracts talent to the industry while providing students real-life insurance and financial management experience.

InVEST understands the millennial generation, the largest generation yet at 100 million people, will soon dominate the workforce. InVEST needs teachers and industry volunteers to help attract the attention of the most technology savvy generations yet. Currently, the next generation of decision makers perceives the insurance industry as “old in general” (62 percent) and “not innovative” (53 percent). However, the insurance industry offers opportunity for growth, lucrative career opportunities and flexibility for a health work-life balance. Become involved with InVEST and help students springboard into rewarding careers.
