Development: Employee Development
What are your career goals ... your dreams ... your aspirations? Employee development can help you get there! State Farm has a long history of developing our employees. We hope your employment with the Company is a lifelong journey of development for you.
In any role, your first priority should be becoming proficient in your current position. However, as you complete your training, we encourage you to start thinking about ways to both excel in your current job and prepare yourself for future roles. You may consider development for additional responsibilities on your current team, opportunities in other departments or one of the many leadership positions State Farm has to offer. There are many opportunities at State Farm, but it's important to continuously develop yourself, keep your skills current and prepare yourself for the next step, whatever that may be.
Your first step is to review and update information in your Universal Profile in MyBlock. Open MyBlock by hovering over your name in the upper right hand corner of the SFnet homepage and selecting MyBlock. Hover over the Home tab and select Universal Profile. On the Resume tab of your Universal Profile, you can edit or add to your Education, Continuing Education and Designations, Languages, Licenses and Certificates, Memberships and Affiliations, and External Work History. The Resume section of your Universal Profile tells the story of your skills, experience and education – and will be used when you express interest in or are being considered for opportunities within the Company, so you’ll want to ensure you keep it current.
The Career Preferences tab of your Universal Profile allows you to indicate your preferences for relocation and business areas within the company in which you have a career interest.
State Farm University
Another valuable development resource offered at State Farm is State Farm University (SFU):
- A wide assortment of training and resources providing opportunities to learn throughout the employment lifecycle beginning with employee onboarding.
- Also provides timely, contemporary, and relevant personal and career development training and resources.
The MyBlock Career Center allows you to view open positions within the company and to submit your interest after discussing your career objectives with your supervisor. Your Universal Profile Resume will be used in the internal application process, and you'll have the opportunity to include additional comments about your qualifications for an open position. You can also view all positions within the company on the Career Center, and set job alerts for positions that interest you.
The My Applications & Tasks tab will house any tasks and information related to internal applications you submit. Visit the MyBlock Career Center to learn more and explore opportunities.
Once you are ready to start thinking about other positions within State Farm, we encourage you to let your supervisor know. He or she can provide guidance, as well as help you understand and develop the skills and competencies you need to be ready for your next opportunity.
