Travelers is part of the dynamic and ever-changing insurance industry that employs more than 2.3 million people in the United States. Whether or not you have experience in the industry, Travelers values your skills and background.

If you are new to insurance, rest assured that Travelers offers a variety of internal programs and resources to get you up-to-speed. And there’s no better place to learn about the industry than Travelers – the second-largest writer of commercial U.S. property casualty insurance.
Since the 13th century when ship owners began creating contracts to protect themselves against the possibility of losses, insurance has evolved into a challenging and complex industry. Today, there are more than 2,600 property/casualty insurance companies and 1,200 life/health insurance companies in the United States, according to the Insurance Information Institute. These companies account for a portion of the world insurance premiums, which totaled $4.1 trillion in 2007.
Today, the insurance industry covers nearly every imaginable risk – from catastrophes like floods, fires and hurricanes to auto accidents to identity theft. Throughout the industry, including at Travelers, there are constant opportunities to create more innovative insurance products and solutions that better protect customers against these risks.
