We are currently looking for Agents in Nova Scotia. This may be just the opportunity for you, or it may be for someone you know who is not happy in his current situation.
Have you ever taken a moment to stop and ask yourself, is there a career opportunity out there for me?
1) …that will allow me to be my own boss?”
2) …where I can have unlimited income potential?”
3) …where I can have excellent benefits?”
4) …where I can become a respected member of my community?”
There is such a career where all this is possible…and much more. Consider a career as a field agent for the Knights of Columbus. This is a career with a few very important qualifications and a long list of benefits that no single other
career can provide.
High integrity Opportunity to make a difference in members’ lives
Self-motivated Individualized training program
Good time management Flexible hours once established
Entrepreneurial Income potential of a professional
Goal oriented Training allowance and production bonuses
Genuine concern for others Non-contributory, defined benefit pension plan
Desire to succeed Ongoing supervision and self-development
Incentive award trips to places like Rome,Hawaii, St Thomas, Cancun and Ireland
If you’re still not convinced that the Knights of Columbus provides and excellent opportunity, then consider a few other questions:
1) If you remain in your current position, where will you be three years from now? (Income, promotion, possibilities, etc.)
2) How would it feel to have your income be a direct reflection of your success at work?
3) What would it feel like to know that while earning as much as you desire, you are also helping people prepare for their future?
If these three questions make you stop and think, maybe we should talk. My contact information is below.
TAKE CONTROL OF YOUR FINANCIAL FUTURE AS A PROFESSIONAL AGENT FOR THE KNIGHTS OF COLUMBUS
Council Grand Knights are reminded to bring their donations to the 97th State Convention and get a ballot (one for every $50 donated) towards the drawing of the Foundation’s Fr. Leo Boone Statue. Councils are also reminded that whichever Council donates the most to the Foundation during each fraternal year it will receive the Fr. Michael J. McGivney Statue for one year. Both statues are hand carved and crafted recognized and celebrated works of art by Past State Deputy and founding Charitable Foundation Chair Al Durham.
