Hey guys, very random question so had no idea to post it so said I throw it in here.
I am currently researching potential jobs and there is a business I would love to work for but the competition for the vacancies is quite large. The business is in the insurance industry and they stated that having "Insurance Application knowledge is a plus". Does anyone out there know what applications are used in the insurance industry? This will be a huge help as then I can go research the applications and gain some knowledge of them.
I used to work for a mortgage insurance company (guess what happened to that job when the industry crashed). Our underwriting system was a JSF monstrosity written entirely in-house. Insurance is primarily built around two things; an underwriting application which evaluates the applicants eligibility and chooses the best plan, and SAS which is used by actuarials to determine pricing based on statistical analysis. I'd suggest you start by researching those topics.
