enjoyable and productive workplace
Insurance Adviser (Former Employee) – Ayala Avenue, Makati City Philippines – January 3, 2014
Manulife provides its sales agents all the necessary tools, trainings and support to make them productive and successful in their career. A typical day at work involves:
-prospecting (sourcing a list of names of possible clients through the natural market or referrals)
- setting up appointments through phone calls
- meeting the client to conduct an interview and needs analysis profile
- make a proposal based on clients needs
- set-up second meeting for presentation of the proposal
- close the sale.
From this job, I learned how to deal with different kinds of people. I enjoyed getting to know clients and friends and answering to their family's need for security and protection. I also learned how important life insurance coverage is for the family.
My manager and colleagues were very supportive and patient in teaching and training us how to handle our clients and how to go about our work.
The hardest part of the job is setting up appointments since most of the time my target clients are busy with their jobs. But through persistence, I can set up appointments with them.
Work at your own pace
