“Finding a job in this economy can be tough enough,” said spokesman Justin Tomczak. “State Farm wants to ensure that when our veterans arrive home, we thank them for their service and provide them the career opportunities they deserve.”
In 2012, military men and women of the United States Armed Forces will return after more than a decade of active war in the Middle East.
State Farm has established a network of military ambassadors and recruiting specialists who will visit bases to help veterans, who are transitioning to civilian life, write resumes and conduct mock interviews.
State Farm also will be participating in monthly military recruiting career fairs. Throughout the year military career fairs will be held throughout the country in connection with Corporate Gray and Brazen Careerist.
State Farm is spreading the word about these outreach efforts via social media. Three new videos were recently posted to State Farm’s YouTube channel.
The videos feature current State Farm agents and leaders who joined the company after serving our country.
“We’ve found veterans to be talented candidates for Agency opportunities,” Tomczak said. “The videos feature a network of veterans from across the country who have successfully transitioned into our State Farm workforce.”
The featured veterans talk about their service, their State Farm life, and the solid values and opportunities that each provide. They also come from a range of military ranks, including Tuscon Agency Field Consultant David Campanale who served as Chief Master Sargent of the Air Force.
“Through sharing the experiences of our State Farm veterans, service members will understand the alignment of values and skill sets and see opportunity to build a strong career and develop roots,” Tomczak said. “Then they can act on that opportunity by joining State Farm.”
