1. How much do you start off after a year out of college.

2. What is the maximum you can make?

3. What skills should one have before starting a career as a underwriter.

4. What do you hate and like about your job/

5. Is there a lot of job placements and openings?

6. Any extra inputs and tips. I'm not a underwriter, but I work for the insurance

industry and I did some research on this subject, correct me if I'm wrong.

1. Insurance company don't hire "underwriter" right out from school, most of the underwriter step in the industry first then move on to the job, there is junior underwriter if you are lucky to get hired and it will be starting at 35k to 40s.

2. 35k to 80k

3. Get you license, depends on the policy you underwriter. It needs different license or certification. For life insurance, it needs ALUU (hope I spell it right), for property and causality. it needs CIP.

4. I guess you deal with papers and cases, not too much interactive with people around. It maybe a plus for you if you are a quiet person.

5. Not really. I don't see much openings and those that they hire needs minimum 5 years exp. I'm not there yet.

6. Good Luck and find a job at the insurance company first and they will sponsor to get the license if they like you enough. D
