New York Life Insurance Company

Job Title: Financial Services Professional

Job Description:

Entry level or new college graduate opportunities rarely give you a Financial Professional (Agent) opportunity that allows you to manage your own book of business. As a New York Life Insurance Company Financial Professional (Agent), you will not only manage your own book of clients, but provide clients with insurance options and customer service. You will help your clients prepare for long-term financial stability and security.

New York Life is currently seeking self-motivated, driven individuals with a passion for making a positive impact on peoples’ lives. Your collegiate experience as a student, a member of student organizations, a leader, or a student athlete have given you the skills you need to launch a career in a company with a well-known reputation and resources. Your entrepreneurial spirit and desire for personal growth can take you wherever you want to go, and New York Life can help.

As a Financial Professional (Agent), you will have the freedom to build your network of insurance clients and business associates who are looking for insurance and financial solutions. Many of our Agents started their careers with New York Life, right out of college. Entry Level candidates are encouraged to apply.

Responsibilities of Financial Professional – Financial / Insurance – Entry Level

· Schedule appointments and meet with potential clients

· Make product recommendations to help clients meet their financial goals

· Provide ongoing service and support to existing policyholders

· Be a structured and coachable team player that is open to training development and further education

· Discipline to be in business for yourself, but not by yourself


New York Life offers you not just another job, but career possibilities!

Job Requirements


You do not need sales, business development, marketing, or insurance experience to begin your road to success in this role! All you need is passion and a desire to make a difference.

Our comprehensive training program will help give you the tools you need to succeed and create the career success you envision.

We are looking for people who possess the following background/characteristics:

· 2-year degree

· Highly self-motivated and self-disciplined with the ability to work effectively with little or no supervision

· Outgoing personality with the ability to develop relationships (i.e., “People Person")

· Fearless, positive attitude and willingness to be accountable for results

· Organized, detail-oriented and excellent time-management skills

· Desire for continuous learning

· Good communicator—excellent listening skills and ability to explain complex information in a simple and concise manner


Here is what distinguishes this opportunity with New York Life:

· Career advancement - Continue to build your own business or, if qualified, move into management – the choice is up to you. Criteria for management are defined and quantifiable. After two years as a successful agent, additional opportunities that may be available include: sales development manager, product consultant, and Home Office opportunities in recruiting, marketing, or training.

· Training – NYLIC University: One of the most comprehensive and well-respected training programs in the industry.

· Constant support - During and after formal training, you will receive continuous assistance from your manager and peers in your region and across the country to help you succeed. New York Life offers the feeling of being in business for yourself, but not by yourself. On-site trainers and product consultants are available to you, and this is coupled with an entire division within the company located in the Home Office dedicated to providing agents with prospecting and sales ideas, product knowledge, and application -- we want our new agents to be successful!

· Integrity – “The Company You Keep" – Represent a company you can believe in, be proud of, and find a career home with.
