I am confident you can do the same for him!
Senior Commercial Underwriter

I first met Francis Ruiz 9 year ago. In that time, she has helped me successfully connect with employers who have greatly benefited my career. She is the best at what she does and there is no one I would rather deal with.
National Commercial Senior Specialist

I learned very quickly that the insurance industry is an incredibly vast and complex one. As a young man fresh from University I had spent a year working for a large insurance company before deciding to get my insurance RIBO license and pursue a career as a broker.

Upon successful completion of my license examination I was quickly offered my first position and before I knew it I was behind a desk working as an insurance broker. However, being new to the industry, I lacked the necessary experience to know how to negotiate an unemployment contract, ask the right questions and understand what certain industry terms meant for me. Essentially, I was “in the dark” so-to-speak. That was when a trusted friend of mine recommended the Insurance Career Network.

After the first meeting with my representative from ICN I knew that I had made the right choice in seeking their services. To begin, they made me feel without a doubt that they were concerned first and foremost with what was best for me. At the time I was quite green but they were able to illustrate to prospective employers about my potential. They didn’t over sell me they simply saw talent that needed fostering and in the end, I was placed with a brokerage that was looking for young talent to nurture. This placement allowed me to become the broker I am today. I resigned from this brokerage due to a personal relocation.

Finally, nearly 8 years after my first placement I had hit a point in my career where I needed to make a definitive decision on the size and type of brokerage I was seeking for the rest of my career. The first action I took was to call ICN. In less than three weeks I have secured placement with a brokerage that fits both my short and long term career ambitions. ICN was with me every step of the way. In addition, because I had an existing portfolio ICN made sure that this next brokerage was also a good fit for my clients. Again, the placement was a successful one and I was able to greatly add to my insurance knowledge base.

If all goes as I hope I will remain here the rest of my career. The only downside to that is I likely won’t be able to work with ICN again! Having said that, any broker I meet at any stage in their career, I will wholeheartedly refer to ICN. ICN played a vital role in the best decisions I’ve made as an insurance professional.

Regards,
Your Loyal Friend.
Broker, Commercial Executive
