"My favorite part of the Internship is the ability to work with so many different talented people and learn new things every day. To me, a job that isn't the same every day and has the ability to challenge me every day is important. Bankers Life offers me an opportunity to do just that."

"The Internship has definitely helped me realize that the main goal of all Bankers Life Agents should be to help people. I have learned that once you help someone and show them that you can add value to their life; they will be much more likely to buy from you."

"I decided to spend my summer with Bankers Life because I was looking for sales experience to help me better communicate with people. Once I learned the training/sales model and I met the people in the office, I knew this was the perfect fit. I interviewed last summer with another sales insurance firm, and they forced you to make your own leads and ask all of your family and friends. Bankers Life was such a better place to work, and they really do help you succeed!"

"My favorite part of the internship has been interacting with all of the other Agents and seeing their own unique sales methods. No two Agents are the same in a house, and I have enjoyed seeing the alternative approaches of each Agent. Bankers Life also does a very good job at compensating and incentivizing their Interns!"

"I have never had a better chance to grow both professionally and personally with any other organization."

"Excel and advance based on your own work ethic and drive to succeed. There are no limits to where you can go with Bankers Life!"

"I get to be self-employed, but with strong support from my Bankers Life family."

"The opportunity of a lifetime. I am able to assist people with their lives and enrich mine at the sames time."
