INSURANCE AGENT STRESSED BY HATE ON THE INDUSTRY – “EVERYONE IS UNHAPPY WITH US”

An insurance agent shared how this is his first job since graduating from university, and that he loves being an insurance agent.

However, he added that he understands the stigma against insurance agents, and hence he doesn’t approach his friends individually to sell them insurance.

He shared how “everyone is so unhappy with us”, and that he tries to be a “good sheep” in the insurance industry, but “it seems the hate is getting worse”.

He then asked if he should leave his job as an insurance agent and join the corporate world, and wonders how the other insurance agents are doing.

Here is what he said

Admin plz post this, thx.

I am a financial consultant agent that has been in the business for 3.5 years and this is my first job since I grad from university.

I loved my job and have nothing but good testimonials throughout. I do not approach my friends individually to stress them out and understand the stigma in the industry.

Recently I saw some post circulating and it really made me so upset. Everyone is so unhappy with us. I really tried my best to be a “good/average” sheep in the industry and I believe my peers did try to, but it seems the hate is getting worse.

I feel as though the whole world sees my career as something disgusting which is not a good feeling to feel. I also feel this situation is so unfair as compared to other jobs, this job gets so much hate online.

I understood the stigma but thought I will not have to see such hate unless I did something wrong. But now more and more articles and posts are coming in.

I joined because I believe in insurance as my aunty has claimed successfully and in fact many of my friends say they understand the importance of it. But it doesn’t seem the majority of Singaporeans think that way.

Just needed a space to air my thoughts and I wonder how other insurance agents are coping. Maybe I’m too weak, should I enter to corporate or take up another job? Thx everyone for input
