GEICO seeking college graduates for claims leadership program in Northern California

SAN DIEGO, June 16, 2015 – With a new crop of college graduates ready to join the workforce, GEICO is hiring recent college graduates with leadership qualities and an interest in a career in auto damage adjusting for its Management Development Program (MDP) in San Francisco and San Jose.

GEICO's fast-track management training program provides mentoring opportunities, real life business projects and management forums to help develop college graduates into future business leaders.

"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."

GEICO's auto adjusters are the company's ambassadors of customer service. Auto damage adjusting is an ideal career for those with excellent customer service and time management skills who enjoy getting out from behind a desk and into the field to help customers get back on the road.
