How to Get Hired
We asked Farmers Insurance 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?
Farmers looks for passionate, forward thinking, self-starter characteristics in prospective employees. We are constantly striving to differentiate ourselves by driving transformation and look for prospective employees that have the motivation to help shape the industry. The culture at Farmers lives and breathes around its customers. We look for those who have a desire to help customers so they can protect the things that matter most, and help support customers during hardships. Our community involvement is just as important as we encourage our employees to volunteer and provide the opportunities to do so. We continue to seek employees that want to help improve and strengthen our culture by having these common traits: intelligence, integrity, empathy, straightforward, supportive nature, and a proactive approach to serving our customers. Candidates who value the diversity and potential of every individual, exceed our customers’ expectations, and stand up for what is right.
What can prospective employees do to get your attention?
Prospective employees can get our attention by actively participating in industry, technical and leadership networks. We value relationships and want future employees who share that value. A key differentiator is actively participating in community based initiatives as a leader and supplementing your technical skill set. Also by actively displaying the behaviors that align with our values, and making yourself discoverable through professional networking online sites or networks can be helpful. We find top talent every day in service roles where professionals are providing best in-class service to their customers. We aim for the highest quality and strive for continuous improvement. We look for candidates who have the courage to go where no one else has gone and see failures as an opportunity to learn and improve, and value curiosity and action.
Are there any positions or types of candidates you are particularly focused on hiring in this coming year?
Since customer centricity is at the heart of all we do, we continually seek candidates to join our efforts in serving our customers. Because technology plays a key factor in transforming our work of the future, we are looking for professionals with critical technology skill sets or those who have engineering and data science in their backgrounds. We are also increasing the need for experience in data analytics and statistical analysis as we continue to innovate new products in the market. We look for a wide range of levels of experience, perspectives and skill sets. As our industry evolves, we also look for progressive thinkers who can see the future of the insurance industry.
