I have always been a big believer in the power of networking and the importance of having a strong professional network.


I had recently made the connection to a potential employer through a mutual friend and was excited to see what opportunities might come my way. Little did I know that I was about to be tricked into a bank job interview that turned out to be selling insurance.

It all started when I received an email from a woman claiming to be from a bank. She said that she heard great things about me from a mutual friend and was interested in having me come in for an interview. She explained that the bank was looking for a new wealth management executive, and I thought it sounded like a great opportunity – I had been looking for a job in the banking industry for some time.

I accepted the invitation and set up a meeting with her.

When I arrived at the bank, I was greeted by a very friendly woman who introduced herself as the “hiring manager”. She said she was impressed by my resume and asked me a few questions. After a few minutes, she handed me a contract and said I was hired.


I was so excited! I couldn’t believe it – I was finally going to have a career in banking.

But then she added that the contract was actually for selling insurance. I was taken aback. I hadn’t been expecting that and didn’t know much about selling insurance. She said that the job was a great opportunity because I would be able to learn on the job and build a successful career. I was hesitant, but she assured me that I would be successful and it would be a great learning experience.

I reluctantly signed the contract and started my new job. I quickly realized that the job wasn’t what I had expected. It was a lot of cold-calling and sales pitches, and I found it difficult to be successful in such an environment. I was frustrated that I had been tricked into this job, and I felt like I had wasted my time.

After a few months, I decided to quit and look for a job that was more in line with my skills and interests. I was able to find a job in the banking industry and I am now working as a financial advisor. I am so happy that I made the decision to leave the insurance job.

Looking back, I realize that I was tricked into a job that wasn’t what I expected. I was misled and taken advantage of, but I’m glad that I was able to move on and find a job that fits me better. It’s important to remember to be careful when networking and researching potential employers, and to do your research before making any decisions. If something doesn’t feel right, trust your gut and don’t settle for a job that isn’t right for you.
