Do you have an agents license or a brokers license? If the latter, you should consider applying to one of the big brokerage - Aon, Marsh, Willis, Gallagher, Locton, etc.

What did you do prior to obtaining your license? Consider working for a brokerage that caters to businesses in your prior field. You’d have a leg up over others. Good luck.
