A number of insurance companies are on a hiring spree across the country, looking to increase their sales and services workforces.
Aflac and Liberty Mutual are two of the biggest insurance companies hiring the most in sales, according to Forbes. Aflac currently has approximately 596 jobs postings, and Liberty Mutual is looking to hire 385 sales executives.
Tom Giddens, senior vice president of sales at Aflac, told the news agency the company is ripe for growth.
"One of the ways to realize the market potential is to continue to recruit and train new sales associates who can call on small and medium sized businesses across the country," Giddens noted.
Outsourcing giant Paychex said it is also seeing an increase in demand for sales executives in the insurance services industry throughout the country.
Meanwhile, in Oklahoma, car insurance telemarketer CarSafe LLC has announced that it was relocating its corporate office from St. Louis to Oklahoma City.
