How to Have a Pain-free Health Insurance Experience

At Career Find, we do our best to send out helpful career-related hints and tips every month that can help you, a friend or a family member. As we enter the 4th quarter of 2014, we want to share some of our most valued strategic business partners with you. The people we highlight are masters of their trades and we have been recommending them to our friends, family and clients for years.

November starts the beginning of health insurance enrollment. One of our trusted partners specializes in helping businesses and individuals navigate the complicated world of insurance. When you work with John Huncharek and Chris Duell from Academy Financial Group, you can expect to be educated about all options available to you and feel confident that you will select the best plan for you and your business. With their incredible knowledge base about health insurance as well as their friendly no-pressure demeanor, we highly recommend Academy Financial Group for your health insurance needs. 

“Academy Financial Group provides health insurance, life insurance, disability income insurance, long term care insurance as well as dental and vision insurance to individuals and families. We also help companies navigate through health reform and provide employee benefits to small and medium-sized businesses.

For individuals, healthcare open enrollment begins November 15th and we help individuals find the most appropriate plan for them. We shop for the best deals and present options for our clients. Because we are not obligated to any insurance company, we go to the company that will be the best fit for each client. We spend time educating people on the pros and cons of each insurance plan so they can make the best choice for them. We try to give our clients the bigger picture on protecting their families so they can take a road map with them for the future.

 For small companies, we help them figure out whether it is better to have individual coverage or group coverage. For medium-sized companies, we help them avoid penalties and meet the government requirements. Again, we like to shop companies and present the best options. Our job is to give companies the best information that will allow them to make good decisions.”

Are You Neglecting Your Network of Professional Contacts?

Businesswoman Crossing the Finish Line Ahead of Businessmen

Active job-hunters know social networking sites can be some of the best tools for finding employment because it is easy to network with other professionals, friends, family, co-workers and new contacts.  But if you are happy in your job, you forget to continue to update your LinkedIn profile with new accomplishments and connect with new co-workers and industry contacts you’ve recently met. While we don’t think you need to be always looking for the next best thing, we do think that you need to be prepared for when life throws you a curve ball. In other words, you never know when you may need to utilize your resume and contacts again. Here are three tips to help you stay on track with your resume and professional contacts…

  • Stay in Touch – Carve out time each week to go through your business cards of new connections and get LinkedIn with them. It’s an easy way to say “it was nice to meet you” and that you would like to stay in touch.
  • Help Others – If you see a professional contact, friend or family member who is looking for a job and you can help, don’t hesitate. Getting recommended for an interview gives that job-seeker a leg up on the competition. You also never know where that person may be able to help you out in the future
  • Show Off – When you further your education by taking some classes, get promoted or land a big client, don’t be afraid to add that to your LinkedIn profile. As your job changes and grows so should your resume. The easiest way to update your resume is through your LinkedIn profile where co-workers, clients and even your boss can comment on a job well done.

Job Search Strategy isn’t something you should only think about when you are Actively looking for a new job.  It’s what you do BEFORE you start looking for a new job that’s equally important.  Are you neglecting your network of professional contacts?  We can help you keep your job search strategy in play even before you need it.  Contact a Career Specialist for more information!
