How to Get Hired
We asked Aflac Incorporated for some inside information on how to get hired at the organization. Here is what they had to say.
What key characteristics tell you a prospective employee will be a great fit for your company?
Aflac's approach to finding employees is “Hire for attitude, train for aptitude.” If you're interested in working here, you can expect hiring managers to ask questions about six core competencies that are important to the business: being action-oriented and adaptable, having a customer focus, demonstrating ethics and values, working with integrity and trust, and listening. These competencies reflect Aflac’s culture and will ensure a good match.
What can prospective employees do to get your attention?
At Aflac, everything we do is focused on being there for our customers in their time of need. Whether we’re recruiting for an application developer, accountant or customer service representative, we’re looking for candidates focused on exceeding customer expectations and who can share how their role enables us to deliver on the promise we’ve made to our policyholders.
Are there any positions or types of candidates you are particularly focused on hiring in this coming year?
Aflac has openings across the organization, including but not limited to opportunities in its Financial Services, Marketing, Sales, Training, Operations, Customer Service and Strategic Sourcing divisions. We are always looking for candidates who have an analytical skillset along with creative problem-solving abilities.
What should interested candidates do to find out more and get started?
Interested candidates should visit Aflac’s career page, www.aflac.com/careers, to create a new user career profile. There, candidates can search and apply for open positions.
Aflac recruiters attend college job fairs, and for those still in school, they can apply for our summer internship program. In the past year, the company also filled approximately 59 percent of its open positions with external candidates.
Once they're on board, new hires can sign up for 19 needs-based courses to learn professional, technical and administrative skills. Industry education opportunities include on-site examinations. Some departments provide a cash award for successful completion of each course.
