CHICAGO – Today’s young professionals face a number of hot trends and shifts that will significantly impact the industry’s professional landscape. How can they effectively adapt to the ever-changing job market and develop the “most wanted” skills employers are searching for? Margaret Resce Milkint, managing partner of The Jacobson Group, will answer these questions and more at the Insurance Accounting and Systems Association (IASA) Educational Conference & Business Show in Nashville, Tennessee .

“Hot trends, technological advancements and constant disruption industry-wide have demanded a new type of leader,” said Milkint. “Soft skills are no longer just nice to have; rather they define the success of tomorrow’s leadership. Strong communication skills, creativity and empathy are among the must-haves.”

Milkint will present “Navigating the Insurance Career Path: Strategies for Success” on June 5 at 1:15 p.m. The session will identify the high-demand areas and emerging trends within the industry, discuss the top skills wanted by the employers and recommend best practices for networking, development and personal branding.
