The key is really what your interests are. Can you walk into a group and enjoy speaking with whoever you meet? If so then a marketing/sales track may work for you. Do you enjoy analysis? If so consider underwriting or premium audit. Many other careers exist and although it was many years ago I got my first insurance job (after creating their interest in me through an interview) by asking if I could spend a day with one of their field reps to see just what he did. At that time the companies had formal schools to train new hires but, even if available you will do well to study for professional certifications to prepare you for the next step up the ladder.
Short answer, what is the best way to get an entry level job: research a company, get an interview and demonstrate that you are really interested in what they do, ask questions, make observations and show a willingness to learn.
