Here’s the second part of our 2018 “30 Under 30″ feature.
In the past, we relied mainly on a nomination campaign to round up the 30 Under 30 candidates.
For the latest version, we conducted our own search for people under 30 who have been working as life agents, health agents, annuity advisors, home office staffers, and professionals in closely related fields, such as life insurance law and life and health policy advocacy.
We developed the candidate list using proprietary search methods that favored candidates who have a strong presence on the web.
To repeat what we said last week: We’re not trying to identify the “best young life and health professionals.” The last thing we think members of Generation Standardized Test need is another assessment process. We do think this list can give readers an interesting look at the people who will be the industry’s future.
We relied entirely on public information to create this list, and we based the ages given here mainly on estimates, based on high school or college graduation dates. Some people here may be 30, or a little older.
Some of the people listed here are really property-casualty agents who happen to be licensed to sell life insurance, because, these days, that appears to be how many young life agents are coming in to the sector.
We ran the first batch of entries Sept. 17. The third and final batch will appear Oct. 1.
