Position Summary
The Financial Professional position is a sales position with The Prudential Insurance Company of America selling insurance and financial services.

Essential Job Functions
As our representative, the Financial Professional must have a full understanding of all our products and be able to recommend to appropriate solutions in the interest of the customer.

  • Prospect for clients, develop insurance and investment strategies and make sales presentations regularly for a broad range of life and non-life insurance contracts and financial products and services sold by Prudential Financial companies.
  • Propose insurance and investment products appropriate to the clients’ needs and ability to pay.

  • Maintain in force the existing insurance and investments products of clients, secure the reinstatement of insurance that has lapsed, and perform all the duties incident to the care and conservation of the business assigned by Prudential. This may apply to all policies, whether or not the insurance was originally sold by the Financial Professional.
