About New York Life:

New York Life is a Fortune 100 company with a long history of doing good. We have been in business for over 175 years, helping generations of Americans protect their families and attain their financial goals. As a mutual company, we are accountable only to our policyholders, not to Wall Street or outside investors. We are focused on the long-term success of our clients.

What You Will Do:

When you offer insurance or financial services, you're not merely selling products, you're developing relationships. Your relationship with your customers, as well as the trust they place both in you and in the products you offer, are critical components to your ultimate success. Financial Professionals provide very intimate services in the insurance and financial services marketplace. They meet with and know their clients on a personal level. The responsibilities of a Financial Professional include: contacting new people, meeting with them and fact-finding to gather necessary information regarding their present situation, providing analysis of situations and, ultimately, presenting solutions that help meet objectives.

Sales Training and Career Development:

If you are selected to join New York Life, you'll make a commitment to the Company, but the Company will also make a commitment to you. With New York Life, you embark on a lifetime of learning and professional development through comprehensive training in insurance and financial services.

Professional development occurs through NYLIC University, a well-regarded training platform, personalized coaching from dedicated training professionals, and the ability to obtain industry professional designations. We are so committed to training that we’ll subsidize it in your first two years, providing you with additional funds, over and above your sales-based commissions, to help keep you on your feet while you complete our training program and grow your business.

As your sales career develops, you may wish to specialize your practice through one of our Practice Model paths or you may even decide if you want to move into management. The Company is structured to support you in reaching all of these goals. Many of today's senior executives began their careers as Financial Professionals in the field.
