Millennials who work at independent insurance agencies are so enthusiastic about their industry, that the vast majority – 82 percent — are encouraging their friends and family to also get into the line of work, according to Vertafore’s “Millennials in Insurance” survey.

“Millennials are saying that insurance is a great industry – not necessarily the story that many folks are telling, that insurance is stodgy and not an opportunity,” says Ben Deda, Vertafore’s vice president of marketing. “But those who have leaped into it are saying that it’s a great place to build a career.”
