What You Will Do
Sales Training and Career Development
Professional development occurs through NYLIC U. It's a program designed to train and develop agents throughout their sales careers. The first phase is Career Development School, during which you'll begin the process of getting your insurance licenses. You'll receive a full introduction to products and selling skills, including how to develop your client base.
After an initial six months of sales training, you'll spend two years in the Associate Program, an intensive experience that's focused on life insurance marketing, product selling, and technical knowledge. Upon completion, you'll be on your way to developing expertise in a selected area in the workplace or in the personal market, addressing individual needs.
The next level of NYLIC University is the School of Professional Development, which offers specialized courses combining class instruction with self-study. New York Life strongly encourages its agents to make a commitment to lifetime learning. For this reason the Company provides tuition reimbursement to Agents and Registered Representatives upon completion of certain industry courses.
As your sales career develops, you may wish to move into management. The Company is structured to support you in reaching this goal. Many of today's senior executives began their careers as sales agents in the field.
