Texas added more people to its population than any other state in the past year1 and is projected to see its economy grow by 1-2 percent2 in 2019. Allstate aims to bring over 2,000 sales positions to the Lone Star State to support this growth, including 150 Allstate agency owners.
"The population expansion in cities across the state presents an opportunity for more Allstate agency owners to protect and serve the insurance needs of families in Texas communities," said Tom Caunitz, Allstate Strategic Deployment Leader.
Allstate is seeking entrepreneurs with an enthusiasm to own* and operate their own business, and make an impact in their community. Through their agencies, they are projected to create thousands of additional jobs in their communities.
"Candidates don't need an insurance background. Allstate provides them with comprehensive education and resources to help them get off to a solid start," Caunitz said. "They need a strong entrepreneurial drive, and the passion to help households in the communities where they work and live. The ideal candidate wants to build a legacy they can pass down for generations."
