How to Get Hired
We asked Liberty Mutual 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?
We want employees who exemplify our core principles. Someone who is a great fit for Liberty, has a combination of tangible and intangible skills and characteristics. We want prospective employees to show us that they possess the technical skills, innovative thinking, and leadership qualities that will help solve problems for our customers. But that is not enough on its own. Candidates also must demonstrate compassion, integrity, and "doing the right thing"- all intangible skills that help us put the customer at the center of everything we do.
What can prospective employees do to get your attention?
Liberty Mutual’s mission is to preserve and protect what our customers build, earn, own, and cherish. Our business is making customers whole again when they need us most. It is our employees who help us fulfill this commitment. Therefore, prospective candidates should be familiar with our value proposition – that doing the right thing for our customers is essential to everything we do – and demonstrate how their philosophy and work ethic aligns with ours. To do this, competitive candidates should provide examples of successful project management, creative thinking and leadership capabilities. Innovation is key to responding to customers and remaining competitive - we want employees who can effectively problem solve, who can work collaboratively, and who possess the ability to communicate clearly and professionally. Show us – don’t just tell us – how you and your experiences will help our customers while driving our business forward.
Are there any positions or types of candidates you are particularly focused on hiring in this coming year?
Over the next five years, we will likely hire 25,000 people worldwide across all business functions. Insurance is an exceptionally complex industry that is impacted more than most companies by global economics, technology advancements, and high customer expectations. To be successful, we need people who are problem solvers, analytic thinkers and leaders whose skills best fit our environment. These are the people who will help us develop the solutions needed to meet the challenges posed by the rapid advancement of technology, rising analytic sophistication, and elevated storm activity.
