For many of us, there comes a time when we go in search of a more fulfilling career. Maybe our current job isn’t doing it for us anymore. Maybe we need more time with family. Albert Einstein, a pretty smart guy, once said, “In the middle of difficulty lies opportunity.” Maybe you’re now on the doorstep of an opportunity for a fulfilling career as a WoodmenLife Sales Representative1.
We’re always looking for Sale Representatives who want to make a difference for families and communities. Even better, this fulfilling career lines up directly with an inc.com story2. The story reviewed 60 studies about what makes a dream job. According to that study review, a dream job comes down to five things:
Without a doubt, many people spend their whole lives looking for a fulfilling career. But your search can be as short as joining WoodmenLife. That’s what Tennessee West Recruiting Sales Manager Eric Kendall (above) did. He had worked in sales for eight years before coming to WoodmenLife. Six years later, he knows a WoodmenLife career is more than just another sales job.
“It’s a dream career,” Kendall said. “Sometimes you have to remind yourself that it’s real. Where else can you make a difference in the community, have a flexible schedule and make a great living? It’s very hard to find. WoodmenLife treats you like royalty.”
The right path toward a fulfilling career is laid out further in a second Inc.com article3. Much of its emphasis is on the ability to find happiness at home and at work in a career that:
Cami Dixon, a WoodmenLife Financial Representative in La Grange, TX, has found great fulfillment helping locally. She also enjoys the flexibility to make her family a priority.
“My favorite thing about working with WoodmenLife is the freedom of my schedule,” she said. “I have been able to attend all of my son’s activities, be available to be his personal ‘Uber’ driver and spend quality time with him. Having two older children, I know how fast these years go by.”
With service to others being so important to building a fulfilling career, joining an organization like WoodmenLife is a no-brainer. We’ve been around for more than 130 years. We are not-for-profit. And we give back to the community. See for yourself at WoodmenLife.org/About.
We take our role in making a difference very seriously. That’s because our company values are guided by a shared commitment to family, community and country — and by our National Community Focus to fight hunger.
We’ve worked to keep our neighbors from going hungry throughout our history and formalized these efforts as a nationwide program in 2015. Since then, we’ve collected more than 936,766 pounds of food and raised $2.9 million. Along the way, we’ve held community food drives, backpack-stuffing events and cookout fundraisers. We’ve also sorted donations at local food banks and served meals at community kitchens.
Because we’re always looking for ways to better serve our hometowns, we saw a great opportunity in joining Feeding America® as a Leadership Partner. The partnership expands our efforts to battle food insecurity nationwide, and it comes as hunger in 2021 could affect one in eight people in America, including 13 million children, according to Feeding America’s Spring 2021 Impact Report.
Working with Feeding America increases our ability to help shape the future of hunger relief in America. It also provides additional opportunities to spread the message about hunger and furthers our mission to ensure our fellow Americans have enough to eat.
Dixon loves the connection between WoodmenLife’s company values and hers. “Without a doubt, I believe the most important quality needed for this career is integrity and always doing what is right, even when others do not,” she said. “As a former teacher, this was a natural fit for me.”
We’ve forged another important partnership to further our efforts to support and honor our nation’s protectors. For decades, we’ve shown our appreciation and celebrated our American freedoms with activities like:
We also have donated more than 3.5 million flags to communities, schools and non-profits nationwide.
Through our partnership with the Gary Sinise Foundation, we support some of the foundation’s key programs and initiatives. That includes being the exclusive provider of U.S. flags and flagpoles for the Remembrance Garden at the Gary Sinise Foundation Snowball Express year-end event.
Our commitment to family, community and country fits perfectly with the foundation’s mission to serve our nation by honoring our Defenders, Veterans, First Responders, their families, and those in need.
Though a background in sales is helpful, it’s not needed to build a fulfilling career as a WoodmenLife Sales Representative. Life insurance and selling can be learned. The desire to make a difference is part of who you are.
“Anyone can succeed at WoodmenLife,” said Financial Representative Paul Brooks of Laurinburg, NC. “You just have to keep looking for the next person to help. As a Representative with WoodmenLife, you have great ways to assist families, either with insurance coverage or retirement products. You always have to ask yourself: ‘Who can I help today?’”
Other ways you put people first include:
“This career allows you to help people, even during a crisis. With having alternate ways of meeting, we can assist our clients or future clients in the most comfortable way for them,” Kendall said.
So, by now, you’re probably asking, “What’s in it for me?”
