TTEC Holdings, Inc. announced Friday that it is hiring 7,300 healthcare licensed insurance agents and agent trainees nationwide to work from home ahead of healthcare's open enrollment season.
As part of the program, those with a desire to grow their career will be enrolled in TTEC's College of Insurance program to prepare them to be licensed health insurance agents in their state, according to a release. In Louisiana, TTEC has partnered with Acadiana Workforce Solutions to provide this valuable upskilling program at no cost to those who are hired.
TTEC invests in and provides a financial investment in each candidate by paying for their course, background check, exam, and licensure. Additionally, the company's approach provides administrative resources during the exam process, such as scheduling exams and submitting license applications to the state, so that the candidate can wholly focus on attaining their licensure.

"We know through partnerships with workforce groups like Acadiana Workforce Solutions that together we can upskill the workforce, which opens the door to career opportunities within the insurance field.
