"As GEICO continues to grow, we're stepping up our efforts to identify rising talent and provide them top-notch training so they can successfully step into management positions," said Shawn Burklin, GEICO regional vice president. "San Francisco and San Jose are areas where we currently are offering leadership opportunities on our auto damage adjusting team, so we're excited to see what kinds of candidates are out there who can become future leaders at GEICO."
