Jacobson Launches Emerging Talent Service Offering to Staff Entry-Level Roles

July 17, 2013
CHICAGO — As the insurance industry prepares for an impending talent shortage, The Jacobson Group is responding with a unique program to help clients develop their workforces. Jacobson’s new emerging talent service offering provides insurers with promising young professionals and recent graduates with an expressed interest in the insurance industry for direct hire, temporary and temporary-to-hire positions.  
“With nearly half of the industry’s workforce preparing for retirement within the next 15 years, we have seen heightened demand for strong, bright entry-level talent,” said David E. Coons, senior vice president of Jacobson. “This program will guide new talent to our clients’ doorsteps to offset the impending skills gap.”
For more than 40 years, Jacobson has delivered industry-specific expertise to solve clients’ staffing needs. With this service offering, Jacobson is expanding its portfolio to include entry-level staffing. This program is a cost-effective complement to traditional campus recruiting.  
“Our niche industry focus allows us to carefully screen candidates and match them up with the position they will succeed in,” says Coons, who will provide leadership for the new service offering, while continuing to oversee Jacobson’s temporary staffing and professional recruiting services.
