Pete Miller, The Institutes

Peter Miller, President and CEO of The Institutes, is optimistic about opportunities for underwriters.  The Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) reports 33,000 openings for underwriters through 2020.  In addition, the insurance industry follows society, so where there is growth in areas like energy, transportation and healthcare, there is opportunity in underwriting risks in those areas. Mr. Miller says The Institutes is looking to make people aware of the opportunities in underwriting through initiatives such as MyPath, which helps young people look at jobs in underwriting.

For college students, insurance “is an exciting industry” that offers much of what young millennials are looking for:  involvement in their community, critical thinking, opportunity to advance, a career that helps people.  According to Mr. Miller, it is a dynamic, global industry that is looking for a lot of young people in the next few years.
