  • Obtain and maintain proper insurance licensing to sell, solicit or negotiate insurance products as required by state statutes
  • A valid driver's license

Demonstrated knowledge of insurance concepts and principles and effective multi-line insurance prospecting and sales experience are preferred but not required. You'll work as part of a team in an office setting. Work on evenings and weekends might occasionally be needed.
