Wish to rise to the top in an aggressive, high-paying career domain. Where your college, course and high percentiles (or lack of them) would not hold you back? If your focus is on finance jobs, then you can consider jobs in insurance, particularly health insurance jobs.
Insurance Jobs: Sector Overview
The insurance industry in India has been estimated at Rs 12,206 crore (as of April), out of which Health Insurance is still an under-penetrated domain. It still remains the lowest priority among Indians, vis a vis a China (30-40% people own a health insurance policy here) or even the US (76%). That translates to a lot of opportunities for enterprising salespersons hoping for insurance jobs.
You can find high-paying jobs in the sector with companies like ICICI Lombard, Star Health, HDFC ERGO, Apollo Munich, Bajaj Allianz, SBI Health, Max Bupa and Religare Health. And we bring you a chance to ensure an assured job position with one of these – Apollo Munich Health Insurance.
