ENGLEWOOD, Colo. - Allstate Insurance agency owners throughout Missouri are planning to hire at least 35 licensed sales professionals by the end of the year. This news comes after September's report issued by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics stating that Missouri stood at an unemployment rate of 8.7 percent since last reported.
Licensed sales professionals play a pivotal role in driving business for Allstate agencies in growing states like Missouri. They work side by side with agency owners, educating and assisting customers with their insurance needs. That's why Allstate is encouraging its 250-plus agency owners to continue to build their agencies by hiring top notch staff.
Interested candidates should have exceptional selling and customer service skills, a high school diploma and the ability to obtain or begin the process of obtaining a Property and Casualty license at the time of hiring.
"These positions present such a great opportunity for talented, motivated people with strong communication and customer service skills, who may not have a college degree," said Tracie Bibb, a Missouri-based Allstate agent. "We encourage interested candidates to not let the licensing process scare them off. We emphasize it's a valuable commitment to make and an opportunity to get a head start in a recession-proof industry."
Interested candidates can apply by sending their resume and inquiries to: WCRLSSResumes@allstate.com.
Candidates are interviewed and hired by Allstate exclusive agents who are independent contractors for all purposes. Although licensed sales professionals represent Allstate, they are employees of the exclusive agent and not employed by Allstate Insurance Company.
