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.
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 seek out future employees who share that value. Actively participating in community based initiatives as a leader and supplementing your technical skill set is a key differentiator for us. Additionally, actively displaying the behaviors that align with our values, and making yourself discoverable through professional networking online sites or professional networks can be helpful. Excellence: We aim for the highest quality and strive for continuous improvement. We have the courage to go where no one else has gone and see failures as an opportunity to learn and improve. We value curiosity and action. We demonstrate passion by constantly questioning the status quo to innovate and improve. We do so with fairness, diversity, trust and mutual respect.
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 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.
What should interested candidates do to find out more and get started?
Farmers takes pride in the informality of our culture and encourages professional networking, mentoring, and outside-in views. We encourage employees of all levels to actively recruit the best talent. Therefore, as a candidate, we encourage you to find whatever resources are available to you. We encourage asking for a cup of coffee or a lunch to get to know us better before even beginning the interview process. All of our open positions are posted on our career site and we are active members on professional networking online communities.
