Here's What Our Readers Are Saying:


I want to reach out and express my appreciation to you and InsNerds. I have been following InsNerds for a while now. I first started following the page when I was looking for a future career. InsNerds helped solidify my decision to join the insurance industry. I was able to see the phenomenal opportunities arising for my generation within an industry that is a pillar of society. Then, I was able to dig deeper, ask questions and receive answers about which designations to pursue. I am extremely excited to be joining HUB International Limited as a Client Executive upon my graduation from Purdue University. I cannot fully express my gratitude to Tony Cañas of Insurance Nerds and to my supervisor, Riley Totten. They have both enabled and prepared me for my future career.

I had been reading InsNerds long before running into Tony on Reddit (and long before becoming a writer and editor). InsNerds is ran by motivated, intelligent, and all-consuming insurance nerds. They're knowledgeable about all parts of the industry and are indispensable when it comes to career advise or insurance topics. It's rare to come across anyone so enthusiastically engaged with anything you might present regarding insurance, and that enthusiasm is contagious.
