You do not need a strong educational background to be successful in the insurance industry

Always feel that your salary is low, and you cannot be promoted due to a low educational background? Do you want to have higher achievements and a faster and more professional career path? In fact, education is not the main concern, the insurance industry is not concerned about your educational background. As long as you have the ability, you can make your own way to success. As long as you pass the IIQE exam, you can join the insurance industry. It is a good opportunity for those who lack education and want to be promoted by ability.

Benjamin Franklin

Many people know that Benjamin Franklin was one of the founding fathers of the United States. But what the world does not know is that he dropped out of school as early as 10 years old and has been working hard with his own hands. He is a pioneer in the US insurance industry and founded a company that sells insurance of houses from loss by fire, which was the first company to sell insurance in the United States at that time. In the insurance industry, education is not the most important thing. As long as you are innovative and you have ideas, you can make a breakthrough.

Isabella Kau Hung Ping

Isabella Kau Hung Ping once ran for Miss Hong Kong Pageant, and she was a part-time model before her candidacy. A few years later, she decided to join the insurance industry. After years of hard work, she is already a division manager and manages a team of more than 20 people. From a part-time model to a division manager, a low education is no longer a hindrance to promotion as long as you join the insurance industry.

Kong Wa

Kong Wa has participated in many famous TV dramas and is very famous in the entertainment industry in Hong Kong. About ten years ago, he decided to join the insurance industry. He was not young anymore, and his education stopped at secondary school. However, he was also able to do well in the insurance industry, and some people made a special trip to his door to buy insurance policies from him.

The insurance industry is very inclusive. Even if you want to change your career or are new entrants, you don’t have to worry much about your education background and working experience, you can join as long as you can pass the IIQE exam. (The insurance industry require a relatively low educational qualification to be licensed.)  In the past, if you are at a lower educational level, you can only choose low-skilled jobs, or some lower-level clerical jobs. However, joining the insurance industry can double or even triple your salary. If you are considering changing jobs or just graduated, you may wish to consider joining the insurance industry by passing the IIQE exam to add value to yourself.
