Montgomery, AL, November 1, 2012 State Farm is actively reaching out to military veterans through a new Agency Recruiting campaign focused on servicemen and women transitioning to civilian life. The company is holding an Agency Military Showcase in Montgomery, AL on November 13th. The purpose of the event is to highlight the State Farm Agency Opportunity to a military audience and prospective future State Farm agents. Agency Field Leadership will be present as well as an agent panel who have military background and made the transition to State Farm.
I believe we owe the men and women of our military the best opportunities when they transition to the civilian world. The State Farm Agency opportunity provides these individuals a way to continue serving people in their local communities just as they have done throughout their military careers said State Farm Agency Field Executive and military veteran, Launey Jason.
Military men and women of the United States Armed Forces are returning home after more than a decade of active war in the Middle East. In the past, the nations largest home and auto insurance company has provided career opportunities for thousands of military men and women. Many of the leadership skills taught in our military are extremely valuable to those who choose to begin a career with State Farm.
It is a great way to align competencies such as loyalty, commitment and passion with the entrepreneurial skills necessary for growing a business. It also continues the militarys commitment to civilian protection as agents impact the lives of our policyholders daily, Jason said.
State Farm has established a network of military ambassadors and recruiting specialists who visit bases to help veterans, who are transitioning to civilian life, write resumes and conduct mock interviews. State Farm also will be participating in monthly military recruiting career fairs.
State Farm is spreading the word about these outreach efforts via social media. Three videos were recently posted to State Farms YouTube channel. The videos feature current State Farm agents and leaders who joined the company after serving our country.
The featured veterans talk about their service, their State Farm life, and the solid values and opportunities that each provide. They also come from a range of military ranks, including Tucson Agency Field Consultant David Campanale who served as Chief Master Sargent of the Air Force.
