Look into internships - even if they are unpaid. Insurance brokers are more likely to hire you if you have experience in the industry already or even in sales. They are looking for entrepreneurs and driven people who can be their own business owner.
Working as a broker is being an independent contractor. All of the major companies will take you. There's some quantifiable testing involved. Also if you end up selling any financial instruments associated with life insurance sales, you'll be required to take various industry testing to get your selling licenses.
As you will be working for commissions, you need to be a people person and enjoy talking to prospective clients about their needs. You also need to write well (written presentations), speak well ( verbal presentations) and to explain complex financial programs to people that aren't and savvy as you.
You can make a ton of money if you're good at trade and build a client base.
