I was working as a manager at a bar in West Virginia before starting my career with the Serur Agencies. My closest friend at the time was working with the company and invited me to apply and they shortly invited me to come in for an interview. When I landed the job I didn't realize how much my life was about to change. Coming to Boston and serving the members of American Income has been one of the greatest decisions I have made in my life. It has changed my life both financially and personally. It has been a pleasure helping union families and it has helped me achieve more than I ever thought possible.
Jake majored in economics while playing baseball all four years and serving as the team's captain his senior year at Wheaton College. Coming right out of college, he didn't have any professional experience in the workforce. With that in mind, he was looking for an opportunity that would allow for growth and quick career advancement based off of merit; not tenure. The work ethic he learned by playing sports, alongside his strong desire to help people allowed him to thrive in client services and leadership. His first promotion occurred within a month of starting with the company, and from there, skyrocketed to a GM position within a year. He's never more excited than when he's able to grant others the same opportunity he was given in 2008.
After playing hockey at a collegiate level Jeff was looking for a position that was team oriented, competitive and a place where he could develop himself both personally and professionally. Jeff fell in love with our company and the career track because after learning about the promotional structure he knew that the work he put in would never go unnoticed. The most rewarding part of his career has been the ability to come to work everyday and know that he had the chance to make a difference in someones life whether it be a client or one of the representatives on his GM team.
