State Farm Holds Career Open House
August 11 for Job Candidates in various Asian Languages and others
[Miami, Florida - August 8, 2007] OCA-South Florida Chapter, along with NANAY Inc., is delighted to work with State Farm to recruit new associates and will hold a “Career Open House” for people interested in starting a career with State Farm.
The “Career Open House” takes place Saturday, August 11, from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m., at the NANAY Community Center, 659 NE 125 Street, North Miami, FL 33161.
State Farm has career opportunities available at all levels, including entry-level associates, college graduates and those applicants with experience in claims.
State Farm® was founded on June 7, 1922, by George J. Mecherle, a retired farmer. It initially concentrated on meeting auto insurance needs of Illinois farmers through a mutual organization owned by the customers. In a little over 80 years, State Farm has grown from a small, farming-community-based mutual auto insurer to one of the world’s largest financial institutions.
Since then, the office has been a large part of the community through State Farm corporate community citizens. Associates donate their time and talent to local organizations such as OCA, United Way, the Southeast Asian Resource Action Center and the Leukemia Society. That is why their ads say, “Like a good neighbor, State Farm is there.®” It’s a philosophy they embrace and try to live by every day.
They have received numerous recognitions and awards such as Outstanding Corporate Partner Award – The Organization of Chinese Americans (OCA) and the National Business Advisory Council (BAC) honored State Farm at the OCA National Asian American Corporate Achievement Awards (2002). This second annual award was presented for having an exemplary record of support and commitment to OCA’s mission and the Asian Pacific American community (2005).
“On the national level, State Farm supports numerous OCA’s projects and initiatives including APIA 101: College Leadership Conference and recently $500,000 grant for education programs in the areas of financial literacy for families and business development for entrepreneurs,” states Winnie Tang, President of OCA – South Florida Chapter. “We are honored to work with State Farm local offices to recruit more Asian American associates so our community would be better serve for all levels of insurance, investment and financial services.”
