Allstate New Jersey Insurance Company is pursuing a plan to appoint 25 new agency owners by the end of 2011, the company announced June 1.
Allstate New Jersey, one of the state's largest insurance companies, is targeting successful, self-motivated professionals for a career as an Allstate exclusive agent. Unlike typical entrepreneurships, Allstate New Jersey provides its new agents with essential tools and resources to help them get off to a great start, including: insurance product education, expertise from company sales consultants, customizable marketing and advertising materials, and performance incentives. The company currently has approximately 270 agents and financial representatives throughout the state.
In addition, new and existing Allstate New Jersey agencies are projected to hire hundreds of licensed sales professionals and personal financial representatives. These positions involve selling life insurance, annuities, mutual funds, and other financial services products.
"The Allstate New Jersey opportunity is encouraging news for entrepreneurs looking for a chance to excel in a down economy," said Dale Schueller, regional sales leader, Allstate New Jersey. "If you do not have an insurance background, we will provide you with education to help position you for success."
