State Farm will be holding a Career Fair January 12, to help fill openings for its expansion in the greater Phoenix area. The company will hire up to 1000 employees in the first half of 2016 and additional hiring will continue throughout the year.

The one-day Career Fair will focus on generating a candidate pool for positions in customer-service, call-center, claims, information technology, underwriting and sales-based support functions. Full-time and part-time opportunities are available, including some positions requiring bilingual skills (Spanish-English).  State Farm offers an attractive benefits package in addition to a competitive compensation rate.

Almost 1,000 employees moved into the new State Farm facility at Marina Heights. The Phoenix-Tempe area will serve as a hub city for the insurance leader. The Marina Heights office, when fully complete, will house claims, service and sales support to State Farm customers.  The new facility is adjacent to ASU Sun Devil Stadium and the ASU Athletic Facilities District.
