In 13 major locations and field offices across the country, GEICO’s recruiting teams are revving up hiring for 2013! From New York to Hawaii and from Alaska to Florida, we plan to hire more than 4,000 new associates in the upcoming year.
Now, when you think of an insurance company, you probably think of jobs in sales, claims or customer service. As a leader in our industry, we absolutely have careers in those customer-centric fields. What you may not realize is that we’re also hiring in our legal department (attorneys, paralegals and legal secretaries), and for business and product analysts, actuaries, and Java and .NET developers.
Know a recent or soon-to-be grad? We have a very active college recruiting program, too. Throughout the year, GEICO recruiters are on campus looking for bright, driven business and computer science majors for two management training programs. In 2013, we plan to hire more than 150 college graduates for these programs, and develop them into future IT and business leaders.
One of our senior vice presidents used to say, “Anything that you want to do in business, you can in the insurance industry.” And it’s true! Insurance companies offer a wide variety of career tracks. From time to time, we even hire graphic designers, public relations coordinators, accountants, nurses and Six Sigma black belts. (Sorry, the Gecko position has been filled.)
