Job Opportunity

Entry level or new college graduate opportunities rarely give you an opportunity that allows you to manage your own book of business. As a New York Life Insurance Company Financial Professional (Agent), you will not only manage your own book of clients, but provide clients with unparalleled insurance options and outstanding customer service. You will help your clients prepare for their long term financial stability and security.

New York Life is currently seeking self-motivated, driven individuals with a passion for making a positive impact on your community. Your collegiate experience as a student, a member of student organizations, a leader or a student athlete have given you the skills you need to launch a career in a company with an unmatched reputation and tremendous resources. Your entrepreneurial spirit and desire for personal growth can take you wherever you want to go, and New York Life can help.

As a Financial Professional (Agent) you will be able to build your network of insurance clients and business associates who are looking for insurance and financial solutions. Many of our top Agents and leadership started their careers with New York Life, right out of college. Entry Level candidates are encouraged to apply.
