I am interviewing with an insurance company soon. They deal in
life insurance lifetime income investment annuities long-term care insurance mutual funds.
Does anyone know what sort of accounting positions insurance companies tend to have? Any suggestions for questions for the interview or anything else going on the interview?
I have, by the way, read up on late trading and market timing with regards to the mutual fund scandals. I see that many companies from now on will have to follow a hard 4 p.m.

I wouldn't really waste my time worrying about general accounting problems faced by the industry, although by all means if you want to read about it, it wouldn't hurt. But, I assume you're going to be going into an entry-level position. What most entry-level positions entail is learning a company's system. That is, you won't be making broad accounting decisions but instead will be doing basically what they tell you to do.

oh yeah...that's a good point. If it's a sales position, what's more important will be whether or not you have a lot of friends who can buy your stuff.

yea, ha!!...that's right...your 1st few victims are always f&f...(freinds and family)....the sales side of insurance co's are a buzz saw for employees...2 out of 100 are good and "make it" as a cpa, the ins co's want you to become salesmen/women and managers.....i tries it but switched to flat fee services, as comissions was a crazy way to go....
good luck !!....make sure you let us all know what occured...
