New York Life has announced plans to hire as many as 3,700 new financial professionals this year.
The insurer hired more than 3,600 new agents last year, almost 60 percent of whom were women
or individuals representing ethnic markets.
In 2012, recruiting efforts will also focus on men and women transitioning to the workforce from the military, the insurer said.
“New York Life has seen unprecedented growth in our field force each year for the past six years,” said Rich Simonetti, VP in charge of field recruiting at New York Life said. “The demand for financial professionals is strong. In fact, according to a recent survey, 14 percent of Americans report they plan to seek professional help
managing their finances in 2012.”
