Spring is just around the corner and you can just feel it … can’t you? The weather is going to change, the flowers are going to bloom, birds are going to sing, and soon-to-be graduates will be seeking out opportunities to put their hard-earned degrees to use.

The good news for these students is that there will be plenty of companies that will be happy to provide them the opportunities they seek. The spring recruiting season is upon us and the GEICO college recruiters, like many others, will be hitting the road searching for top talent to join the fastest-growing insurance company in the industry.

So you are probably asking yourself … why all the hoopla? Graduates need jobs and GEICO has jobs … end of story. Well, not quite. You see GEICO recruiters are not looking for just ANY graduates to fill our opportunities we are looking for the best of the best. The problem is that every other company is vying for the same talent.

The competition on campus has continued to grow from season to season and our college recruiters are constantly working hard to separate themselves from the pack. The college recruiters across the company are the brand ambassadors and the “face” of GEICO on campus. Over the next few months, you’ll find GEICO college recruiters at more than 100 schools and events to promote the opportunities that GEICO has to offer.

These events will range from the general career fair to specific events that will target diverse student populations. The recruiters’ work will make a lasting impression on the candidates they talk to on campus, and will have long-term effects on GEICO’s future talent base.

We are very excited for the spring – should be busy months for our recruiting team!
