I will freely admit; I wrote that title before I even started writing this post. I know, that’s the opposite way of doing things, but I was really excited because I was given the opportunity to try and write a blog post that combines my work with my other passion. By day, I am an E-Learning Product Manager, responsible for ensuring the best, most successful learning experience for students of LOGiQ3’s online Underwriting Training Program. By night, I am an amateur stand-up comic, performing mostly at open mics while I hone that very difficult art, mostly in front of few audience members.
I was excited to try and draw parallels between the two - some quips about the nature of Underwriters; clever puns on the insurance industry (I hate puns); maybe even a self-deprecating take on my job.
But the truth is, there is nothing funny about learning to become an Underwriter. It’s serious work, which demands attention, focus, and energy.
