From: Risk & Insurance

Young risk management professionals are heading directly into the risk and insurance industry in larger numbers than ever before, bolstered by increased awareness of the opportunities available, through recruiting, networking and collegiate organizations.

These young professionals are hungry for opportunity and, specifically, are excited about the stability and chances for growth that surround risk management careers.

However, these young professionals envision their career trajectories a bit differently than the risk and insurance professionals of prior generations.

Once these emerging professionals reach the industry, they want to experience multiple roles and verticals to build an extensive knowledge base. More than that, they are intentional in their career choices as well as their career paths, and they value meaningful experiences, mentoring and continued education opportunities.
