From Internet Infancy to Industry Leader: GreatInsuranceJobs.com Turns 15
Published: Jun 08, 2016 By Roger Lear
It seems like just yesterday that we started GreatInsuranceJobs.com. To put it into perspective, we started the same year as Wikipedia and also the introduction of the iPod (remember that?!).
“We started out in the infancy of the internet, when our biggest competition was the Sunday newspaper classifieds,” states Scott Kotroba, co-founder and President of GreatInsuranceJobs.com. “Much has changed, but our core values mean we continually invest in world class technology to enhance the job search process.”
Co-founders, Roger Lear and Scott Kotroba
We “live streamed” our celebration this week (see video here) and it will give you a quick tour of the offices, our great staff and the official 15 anniversary cake cutting cake cutting ceremony!
Since 2001, the GreatInsuranceJobs.com platform facilitated more than three million job applications. The company credits live customer service and attendance at numerous industry events and conferences (RIMS, ACE, Workers Compensation, SHRM, etc.) as a competitive advantage. “While we’re a tech company, our longevity stems from the human connections we nurture. We listen carefully to the challenges of our clients and job seekers,” explains Roger Lear, co-founder of GreatInsuranceJobs.com.
We just can’t thank our clients enough for working with us over the years. Your jobs, advice, suggestions and numerous meetings over the years help us formulate how we invest in GIJ to make sure we can deliver hires to your organization.
Looking forward to the next 15 years. If you are interested in our timeline and where we are going, visit www.GreatInsuranceJobs.com/15years.
Is the future for attracting insurance talent virtual reality? If it is, GIJ will be the leader!
