Country Financial Presentation

  • Digital Computer Lab Room 1320 (map)

"We care about helping our customers protect what they have and plan for the future. So while insurance and financial services might seem like two very different paths, both can truly impact each other. If someone didn’t have enough insurance and the unthinkable happened, it could affect their retirement nest egg. So, making sure our customers are protected for the “here and now” through insurance products is an important component of protecting their future. 

That’s where you come in. 

As an Insurance Agent, you’ll be working with a team of professionals who focus on financial products and services to help protect the bigger picture for our customers."

Food: TBD
Visa Sponsorship: TBD
