Insurance is already part of everything you do.

Find your career in it.

Making the Connection

The Career Connections staff and insurance professionals, acting as industry ambassadors, actively participate in nearly 400 career fairs and events hosted at schools, post secondary institutions and communities across the country. Ambassadors are also available to give career talks in the classroom and present careers in insurance as part of panel presentations. And to encourage educators to teach about risk and insurance in the classroom, we engage educators at professional development conferences to showcase our teacher resources.
