Dah Sing Life Assurance is looking to recruit more university graduates to fill their 2012 quota of employing about 200 new insurance consultants. 'By the end of June, we were on track, having recruited 110 consultants. We will continue to recruit more newcomers this year,' says Dicky P.T. Yu, head of training and development with Dah Sing Life Assurance. 'We are interested in university graduates, preferably with a degree in business, marketing, economics or finance, and people in sales or with experience in customer service, who are looking for better career opportunities,' Yu says. 'New agents receive a monthly allowance for the first 12 months on top of their commission.' Yu emphasises that among the many important qualities the job requires are integrity, honesty and concern for other people, including good listening skills and understanding clients' needs. Applicants should also show a strong determination to pursue their career and run it as their own business.
