Taylor Agency remains committed to ongoing professional development. This core value acknowledges that expertise can only be derived from experience and ongoing education. As a result, we encourage our employees to continually seek out professional improvement, including industry specific designations like CPCU, CIC, AAI, ARM, CRM, CISR, DIA, etc.
In the same manner, we also actively embrace the young professionals who are new to the business world. We do so by offering internship opportunities with the potential for future employment. Currently, our internship opportunities have brought us Sarah Johnson from Columbia College.
“While interning at the Taylor Agency I have been able to immerse myself in both the insurance business and the professional inner workings of an office environment. I am receiving hands on, real world experience in the business field, preparing me for entering the work force upon graduation. I have really been given the chance to evaluate what I have learned throughout my college career and prepare for things that I need to focus on in order to pursue a successful career. The Taylor Agency has been tremendously helpful in giving me a variety of tasks, providing the support and experience of other members within the agency to make this an incredible internship opportunity.” – Sarah Johnson
Taylor Agency is Mrs. Johnson’s first-time exposure to the business world within a professional office setting, and we are excited to be able to offer her firsthand experience in all aspects of the day to day business practices of an independent insurance agency. Currently, Sarah is an active Columbia College senior working to obtain her undergraduate degrees in Communication Studies and Psychology. Upon obtaining her degrees this Fall, she desires to enter the workforce in the fields of Human Resources and/or Public Relations.
Sarah describes herself as a passionate communicator who is sensitive to the needs of others especially when resolving conflicts. During her brief time here, we would describe her as having a well-groomed work ethic, sharp organizational skills, and an aptitude for quickly applying new skills efficiently. We are proud to have her.
Welcome to the team, Sarah!
