Anastasia DiBiasi graduated in 2017 and works as a Production Associate for All Risks.
1.) What do you do on a typical day at work?
No day is the same! I’ll do agency visits to find new clients, work on new business submissions, compare quotes, and provide service to my clients! I specialize in large commercial construction projects.
2.) How did you come across this opportunity?
My dad worked for a insurance carrier and had connections to All Risks. He got me the introduction but I had to go through a three round interview and was offered the position.
3.) What is the most rewarding aspect of your job?
With All Risks being my second job out of college I was able to compare the companies on a management level even though they were completely different industries. You are given so much independence at All Risks. No one is watching over your shoulder every second of the day. You have a job and a sales goal and as long as you are meeting or exceeding, no one is ever going to tell how to manage your clients. PLUS unlimited PTO if you are in a sales role.
4.) What skills do you find important in your industry?
You must be a very hard worker, this is not a 9 – 5 job and you’ll have a lot of networking to do after hours. Insurance is a relationship game! You have to be comfortable with talking to people you’ve never met as well as want to provide superior service to all of your clients on a daily basis.
5.) In what ways did Eller prepare you for your job?
Group projects were a huge help with my post grad experience. You will always be working on a team no matter what industry you go into. Be ready to work with a lot of different personalities!
6.) Advice for student looking to enter your industry/company?
Reach out to me! If you are interested in risk management, are independent, and if sales doesn’t scare you this is a perfect opportunity for you!
7.) Your favorite UA/Eller memory?
Winning my Case Competition while studying abroad in Argentina. It was such a rewarding feeling!
