Both my current positions require good interpersonal skills.

I have tried to get both entry-level and intern positions but with no luck.
1. Don't restrict yourself to P&C.
2. Don't restrict yourself geographically.
3. Don't ever tell an interviewer that you are BELOVED at your current job. I rolled my eyes about as high as they could go when I read that.
4. Your resume reads like a list of things that you've done. Great. How have you added value to the places you've worked? What have you accomplished?
5. Pass another exam - with a weak resume in an unrelated field, you're probably going to need more than two exams.
6. What is a class marshal? (Unless I'm misreading, it seems like a typo.)
