Hello and happy Wednesday!
Insurance Immersion Intern Taylor Kashmer back again for another installment in the Employee Interview Video Series. In this video, I interview Commercial Lines Account Manager Heather Bedard in our Bridgton Office.
Heather started her time in the insurance industry as a client service associate, eventually moving into her current role of commercial lines account manager. She is very happy in this position for now because she feels that she still has a lot to learn. Heather offered up some great advice to young people starting out in the insurance industry, telling them not to be afraid to ask their peers lots of questions. She points out that everyone here at Chalmers is so willing to help and so willing to teach, which I can personally attest to!
I also want to point out a pattern I've noticed throughout the interviews I've conducted so far with my coworkers here at Chalmers. Every single person has said that their favorite part of their job is working with people and being able to help people. As I become more and more immersed in the insurance industry, I realize this industry is all about relationships. Relationships between agencies and companies, relationships between coworkers, relationships between employees and clients, and so on. I love the fact that insurance is so people-focused. It really doesn't get any better than people helping people!
So on that happy note, enjoy this week's video interview and I'll see you again next week when we talk to Personal Lines Claims Manager Kristen Svenson in our Ossipee Office!
