I graduated in 2011 from a non-target in economics and recently landed a gig at a small insurance group as a Reinsurance Associate. It is an entry level role where I am essentially learning their business from the ground up, but I am able to venture into other aspects of the business such as sales, underwriting, marketing, finance, or accounting. Basically, considering my situation:
-What do you believe would be my best options moving forward with this company and possibly leveraging this experience to move into a bigger role at a top company after a couple of years? (Analyst roles,roles, Brokerage)
-Do you believe the opportunities in reinsurance are vast, and if so, what aspect of this particular industry should I consider? (Or should I consider moving into P&C etc.)
-Also, what designations, certificates, higher-education, or licenses should I consider obtaining in the meantime to further advance my career?
Thank you for your time and any advice or comment on the reinsurance industry specifically is truly appreciated.
