When I finished high school, I took a year off. In my head, I was still going to pursue marketing. I was going to take a year off, save up some money, work, then go to college for marketing. Neziol Insurance hired me back in November of 1999. I spent the first year there doing the same things I did when I was there for my co-op placement.
After that year, I decided to scrap the idea of going to college and was going to stick with insurance. A few years into working there, I applied for a service job there. Taking claims, policy changes, things of that nature. I got the job and they sent me to get my broker license.
I worked in the service department for a few years and liked it. I switched over to sales, and noticed that I much preferred it over the service job. I like having monthly numbers to attain and being accountable for how much money I make.
I’ve been there now for just over 20 years now. It’s a great place to work.
Neziol Insurance was sold to Brokerlink about six or seven years ago. That was a scary time because no one knew what was going to happen with our jobs. Thankfully, I kept mine and love the people I work with.
