October 04, 2018

CHICAGO – Today’s insurance industry is facing a number of hot trends and shifts that will significantly impact the professional landscape. How can emerging professionals 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 Gamma Iota Sigma’s 2018 Annual International Conference in Chicago.

“Technological innovation, impending mass retirements and constant disruptions are changing the industry as we know it,” 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 “Insider Insights: Landing an Insurance Role Just For You” on October 6 at 10:45 a.m. The session will discuss the current state of the industry; identify the top skills needed to excel in today’s insurance market; and recommend best practices for networking, development and personal branding.

As managing partner of Jacobson, Milkint oversees executive management engagements across all industry verticals for the firm’s executive search practice. Her insurance-specific labor-market expertise is highly sought after, and she is regularly called on to share her insights with various industry associations and publications. Milkint co-founded the Women’s Insurance Networking Group, a platform for leading industry females to network and celebrate successes. She chairs the Million Women Mentors Women in Insurance Initiative.  In addition, Margaret serves as the U.S. committee chair for the Insurance Supper Club, which provides a network and forum for senior-level women in the insurance industry on a global basis, and the U.S. co-chair of Dive In.
