I, like many others, fell in to the insurance/reinsurance industry without too much prior thought. I found General Re through a friend of a friend and have been here ever since graduating from Middlebury in 1991. I have found that the industry offers a great mixture of sales/marketing experiences and broad intellectual challenges thinking through the various risks individuals and companies in our world face today.
I started as an underwriter where, after an intensive training program, I joined a team of more experienced underwriters whose job it was to develop relationships with insurance company underwriters. Through these relationships, we worked to assume risks from insurance companies. My job involved evaluating those risks and negotiating a price with the customer. Career paths vary considerably but there are many opportunities to develop deep technical knowledge in various industries, to look after relationships with larger and larger customers and to lead teams of associates.
In whatever degree you obtain from Middlebury, you emerge equipped to identify an issue, evaluate alternatives and work through solutions. I have found that the broad nature of the liberal arts education is very well suited for the marketing and underwriting challenges I am facing today.
We are looking for people who have a broad skill set that includes interpersonal, analytical and leadership abilities. We take these raw materials and will put individuals through a broad based training program where we introduce them to the insurance/reinsurance industry, sales and marketing and underwriting.
Two main reasons I am still excited about General Re after almost 20 years:
The average day for underwriters is a mixture of marketing and underwriting activity. Marketing activity involves working on customer strategies, taking part in marketing activities and negotiating with customers. Underwriting involves analyzing risks by applying your judgment to sophisticated tools and working with associates to deliver the most appropriate answers to our customers.
