As broad as this question is and how miniscule it may sound, it is the most important. If you cannot come up with another answer than "because I'm a hard worker and I really want the opportunity" you should do yourself a favor and walk out of the room. It IS a career in the insurance and financial services industry, however, it is still a sales job; not to be confused with a car salesman. It takes more than a can-do attitude and eagerness to learn to adapt to the 12+ hour work days and frequent time inbetween a solid paycheck. I enjoyed the position/company and will have my own policies remain with Northwestern Mutual, however, I left to pursue a career in the equities/investment banking industry. Insurance is important but not everyones brand of coffee.
