Default Career as Insurance Agent - HR are welcome

Hi all, I plan to ventured into financial industry as a insurance agent or banker - part of career switch.

However due to my previous job history, it seemed that it is very difficult to work in the financial industry especially you were dismissed before by an employer.

Does it mean there is no hope to venture in? are there having chance still?
please advice.

I think there is always a chance. In many ways, everything depends on the company or team. There are understanding managers who do not mind taking a beginner and training him. Of course, you will have to work very hard to fill in the missing knowledge. But if you have an incentive and a goal, I'm sure everything will work out. It is also important to be able to work with documents, especially if you go into banking.
I recently discovered a convenient service for working with documents https://pdfliner.com/acord_25_certif...lity_insurance . If you have not heard about it, then I advise you to read it to know about such resources in the future.

If you are determined and willing to work hard, why not? But you must be sincere about wanting to help people and not for the sake of money, or you end up being one of those pushy agents. Maybe you can prove your sincerity and determination by first taking the compulsory basic insurance course at Singapore college of insurance. The basic course is mandated by MAS for all insurance agents. Once you have achieved this course, it will be easier to get employed by one of the many insurance companies although if I am not wrong, insurance companies are supposed to pay for the courses of their employees.

All the best.

Probably close to impossible. MAS regulates the finance industry and firms are expected to do their own due diligence on their new-hires. I don't think any firm would take the risk of hiring a previously fired employee given the potential repercussions from MAS.

If you are ok to be a financial planner, try advisor clique. I rarely see them not taking in people. In gist banks are harder to get in as compared to those places that are private. Do note that you will be consider a SEP if you are working as a financial planner for non banking institutions
