The site features content about careers in life insurance and financial services for job seekers of all levels, including management.

New York Life says it hired 3,300 people in 2010, concentrating on agents who plan to work in specific ethnic communities and recent college graduates.
"Through real-life stories on this website, jobseekers will hear from New York Life’s agents and field managers about the benefits of a career with New York Life," says New York Life EVP in charge of U.S. Life Insurance and Agency Mark Pfaff in a statement. "Our recruiting goal for 2011 is to hire more than 3,500 agents, with continued focus on young professionals, ethnic communities, and recent college graduates. We are also making a special effort to hire more women agents."
