Insurance Underwriters either accept or reject risks to and on behalf of the company. Underwriters also review broker and agent applications for insurance to determine whether or not to offer them insurance based on the risks they may or may not present. Sample Insurance Underwriter resumes include skills such as conducting process renewal, endorsement, and cancellation requests, and cultivating strong relationships with brokers. While employers prefer Insurance Underwriter candidates to have a Bachelor's degree in business, finance, economics, or mathematics, having experience in the insurance field and strong computer skills may be enough.
