Progressive auto insurance will be holding job fairs in Colorado Springs, in order to hire 150 more people before the end of the year and are looking for individuals seeking a rewarding career within the industry.
The insurer has been named the 2011 Best Company to Work For in Colorado by Colorado Business Magazine, and has also recently been recognized on the Military Times EDGE Best for Vets 2011: Employers list. It is the fourth largest auto insurer in the United States.
Progressive will be hosting a number of career events in order to fill the positions, including a job fair for local military candidates and their spouses in Colorado Springs. It will feature a number of helpful workshops, such as those for resumes and interviews. These workshops will fill up quickly and space is limited, so it is recommended that those who wish to attend should register for the event and submit their resume through the site at: http://bit.ly/ProgressiveMilitaryCareerSession
According to the Progressive military recruiting manager, Connie Dingeman, the insurer holds the dedication and experience of military veterans at a very high value and that veterans can benefit with the insurance company “because they’re able to adapt to changing situations, lead teams, and they understand the importance of having objectives.”
The new employees will be tasked with answering customer questions and selling policies. Qualification requires at least two years of customer service work experience or two years of post-secondary education.
All new hires will receive paid training, which will be especially helpful to individuals who are seeking to make a career within the insurance industry.
