Insurance Journal, Insurance Careers Movement Partner on ‘Cool’ Job Contest for Under-40 Pros

October 16, 2017

Insurance Journal today launched a contest in conjunction with Insurance Careers Movement on what young insurance professionals believe is the coolest part of their job. It’s a bit tricky, however, because participants must give their answer in a photo or a video and they can’t use any spoken words.

The contest is open to anyone employed in the insurance industry who is under-40 years old as of Sept. 30, 2017.

Contestants are encouraged to submit their own 10-second video (with no spoken words) or a photo, answering this question: “What is the coolest part of your job?”

To explain their answer with no spoken words, contestants are free to use a chalkboard, paper, a screen or anything they’d like in the video or photo. Creativity is encouraged.

Insurance Careers Movement is a cross-industry initiative to promote career opportunities in risk management and insurance.

“We look forward to some amazing contest submissions,”said Marguerite Tortorello, managing director, Insurance Careers Movement. “Young professionals are driving innovation in their companies and helping organizations do good in their communities. We are proud to partner with Insurance Journal on this clever contest and appreciate their support of the industry.”

“We have some cool prizes,” notes Kelly de la Mora, senior coordinator of Sales and Marketing, Wells Media Group, parent company of Insurance Journal.

All complete submissions will be entered into prize drawings for an Insurance Journal Academy of Insurance Annual All Access Membership ($597 value) and an Amazon Echo ($99.99 value).

In addition to the Academy membership and the Amazon Echo, winners have a chance to have their photo or video featured on— the highest-trafficked property/casualty insurance news site on Planet Earth.

Plus, contestants also have a chance to be featured in an advertisement in Insurance Journal Magazine. “This gives the winner some major bragging rights!” de la Mora contends.

The deadline to enter the contest is Thurs., Nov. 16, 2017, and the winner will be announced Mon., Dec. 4, 2017.
