Develop Your Network

Years of National Alliance Research Academy studies of insurance and risk management job holders have revealed that the most common way people find work in the industry is through networking. There are many opportunities to build relationships and network with The National Alliance.

  1. Enroll in a designation program and interact with colleagues. If you are working toward or already possess a National Alliance professional designation such as the CIC (Certified Insurance Counselor), the CRM (Certified Risk Manager), or the CISR (Certified Insurance Service Representative), you know the value of networking with colleagues during institutes, courses, seminars, and conferment ceremonies. This opportunity is available to all students of The National Alliance.
  2. Do business with industry partners. Take a look at the list of business partners organized by business types. These businesses help fund research and scholarships to advance and support the industry. Get to know these business names, visit their websites, see what they have to offer, and introduce yourself to them at events.
  3. Join an association. Associations are a great resource for networking with colleagues, supporting important industry legislation, learning about upcoming educational opportunities, and getting started locally in the business. The National Alliance partners with associations across the United States.
  4. Start networking in college. The University Associate Program allows college students to receive college credit and begin professional designation studies for either the CIC or CRM designation. This is the perfect opportunity to network with potential employers, land an internship, and be 20% complete with a prestigious professional designation before starting full-time work. Take a look at our university partners.
