I’ll be working in a good and high risk market, in Los Angeles area …anyone has done this, any suggestions?Thank you in advance for all your assistance!

Not familiar with the Los Angeles area but the bigger more reputable companies out there for Auto and home are the names you see on TV alot. State Farm, Geico, Nationwide, Progressive, MetLife Auto and Home, Liberty Mutual. I would suggest you go to each companies website and click on their career link...OR just walk into one of their agencies and start asking questions. Good LuckSource(s):My job.


You need to get a company to appoint you - and that's mostly through networking.Usually in your shoes, YOU don't get to choose from companies, you're more likely to have to take whoever will take you on. Progressive is a pretty easy one to get into, or any captive agent like State Farm, or Allstate, but then it narrows your options in the long run.
