Camille answers questions about working in insurance:
How did you get into insurance?
I used to work in the BPO (business process outsourcing) industry, sitting inside an office station for almost 6 years as a customer support representative and a quality assurance analyst. And what made me decide to work as an operations assistant for Aspire was the opportunity to work comfortably from home while continuing to be in service to others. At the same time, the position I am currently in allows me to showcase my ability to adapt, multitask, and handle complex tasks, which is a big win for me.
What do you love and not love about insurance?
I love that insurance gives policyholders the security that they need. It provides protection against unexpected events such as accidents, natural disasters, or illnesses. As insurance policyholders, we can have peace of mind knowing that we are financially protected.
However, it’s a pity that not everyone can afford to have this security. Insurance premiums can be rather pricey, and other people may view them as an unnecessary cost and feel burdened to spend money on it, but we should consider the bright side of it.
How is this career different than what others perceive it as? What do you think others perception of working in insurance is?
When I told my mom that I will be working for an insurance company, her first impression was I’ll be selling insurance policies to people—something that she never expected me to do. But Aspire Insurance Group offers diverse responsibilities and one can be involved in tasks such as marketing, data entry, policy processing, quoting, document management, and customer support. The role can be dynamic and multifaceted, requiring a mix of administrative, analytical, and customer service skills.
