Insurance 101

Travelers is part of the dynamic and ever-changing insurance industry that employs more than 2.3 million people in the United States. Whether you have experience inside or outside the industry, Travelers values your skills and background.

While we offer many positions specific to insurance, it may surprise you that our typical employee has a non-insurance background.

New to insurance? We offer programs and resources to get you up to speed. And there’s no better place to learn about the industry than at Travelers – the second-largest writer of commercial U.S. property casualty insurance.

Why work in insurance?

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.

The insurance industry covers nearly every imaginable risk – from 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.
