Need a list of insurance interview questions?
As the millennial generation continues to force a shift from traditional marketing strategies, the insurance sales industry is undergoing a transformation in how the entire sales process takes place.
With more than 40 million online quotes, and growing, it is not uncommon for a customer to complete the entire transaction of purchasing insurance without ever speaking to an agent.
Given the millennial generation’s preference for this online experience, insurance agencies without a strong digital presence will lose sales. This digital presence will need to include a smartphone-friendly website and app to connect agents with customers where they spend much of their time.
Shift In The Insurance Industry
Agents who can move beyond the “one size fits all” policy mindset and present customers with a customized experience and seamless communication both online and off will be in demand.
Additionally, because not every customer will be ready to purchase, being able to build a database of prospects and current/former clients will be an important tool for agents. Below you’ll find a growing list of insurance interview questions, but feel free to also check out this list of interview questions for insurance underwriters, which you might find helpful.
