Well, it has been an unusual couple of weeks since Stacy and I returned from our vacation and cheering on the Chattanooga Mocs in Charleston, S.C. I came down with a really bad cold/flu with a hint of bronchitis last week and spent most of my hours in bed trying to get some rest and overdosing on medication and basketball conference tournaments. This past week I have dealt with some robust sinus reactions.
Guess since I am a househusband I do not have to report sick days, however, that is coming to a change.
I confirmed on Friday, March 8 that I will begin a new interesting chapter in my professional life with UnumProvident Corporation, the world leader in income protection. Chattanooga is UnumProvident's headquarters and is listed at 198 in the Fortune 500 and was ranked by Fortune as one of America's Most Admired Companies.
I will be a consultant in the voluntary workplace benefits organization. I had a great interview several weeks ago and along with great resources and references, I landed the position.
My job description includes:
-Conduct broker education of voluntary benefits products and process flows
-Serve as operational business flow advocate for field representatives
-Develop and deliver proposals
-Implement sold business to ensure successful acquisition and maintenance
-Ensure continuous improvement of relationships with brokers and field representatives
During the past several months while I was working on remodeling projects in our house I was going on selected interviews hoping to find the right position that would fit my goals.
Having the opportunity to work at UnumProvident is a great one. Everyone I talk to loves working there. The hours are reasonable, the pay is good, and the benefits are better than most can provide. Another great benefit is that Stacy and I will be working in the same building downtown and we can car pool! They also have good green beans and corn in the cafeteria. :-)
My first day at UnumProvident is Monday, March 18.
