How It Works
Our online career fair is similar to attending one of our in-person career expos – only instead of chatting with recruiters face-to-face you’ll do it via instant message from the comfort of your home or office, right at your computer.
2) Once the event begins, select which organizations interest you. Our system will let you know as soon as that recruiter can talk to you.
3) Chat instantly in a private booth one-on-one about your background, experience and opportunities at their company or organization in a timed, text based chat.
Free Career Advice and Top Career Resources
Join other successful women for this exciting online experience that connects you directly with top employers seeking great talent in your region.
In addition to meeting employers, you’ll also have access to top-notch career advice and resources, including one-on-one chats with career and job search coaches for tips and advice to empower your job search and career development.
Learn what it takes to launch your career, find a better position or reinvent yourself. You’ll log off feeling more empowered, optimistic and enthusiastic about your future.
American Family Insurance
Growing up in Jamaica, Wendy Edwards learned the value of education and independence at an early age. “I studied at a private school for girls that stressed the importance of discipline and self-reliance, later moving to New York with my brother to attend Queens College. My parents encouraged my brothers, my sister, and myself to come to the U.S. to pursue the American dream,” explains Ms. Edwards. “They believe that with hard work and determination, the United States can offer tremendous opportunity for anyone.”
That foundation of hard work and self-reliance proved to be beneficial as she found herself working a 40-hour week while going to school full-time. All this while adjusting to the hustle and bustle of New York — quite different from life on a small Caribbean island. Her job working as an assistant to a New York Life Agent gave her a first taste of the life insurance business. “It really appealed to my sense of independence. From day one I knew I wanted to be my own boss, and I liked the freedom that a career with New York Life offered,” she says. “You can basically
write your own paycheck. The amount of time and effort you put in truly determines your success.”

Unique Career Path
While many people at New York Life Insurance Company start their career in the field and then make the switch to the Home Office, Bianca O’Brien carved her own special path. She joined the Home Office from college and had a successful career track where she proved herself in a number of positions. Bianca then decided to go into the field…first as an agent, then Partner, then Senior Partner at one of New York Life’s largest offices – the Long Island General Office. From there she led the Jericho Sales Office and now continues her journey as a Corporate Vice President in the Northeastern Zone.

At least 51 percent of the time I tend to be more:
1. Apt to meet conflict head on -or- Apt to avoid conflict where possible (choose one)
2. Frank and direct -or- Tactful and diplomatic (choose one)
3. Objective when criticized -or- Apt to take things personally (choose one)
If you selected two or more answers in the right column, chances are that you’ll be underpaid by approximately 25% of your true value. That’s because you’re sensitive to your relationship with your boss and tend to step back from pushing as far as you can or should.
