Our Insurance Recruitment Philosophy

Commitment To Top Talent Insurance Recruitment

Our passion for attracting top talent begins with our own insurance recruiting specialists. Mirroring the same approach that we use for our clients, we recruit talented professionals who share our core values. Our rigorous vetting of and investment in our own talent is what differentiates us from other insurance recruiters and, more importantly, is how we create tremendous value for our clients.


Through collaborative coaching, mentoring and extensive insurance training, our insurance company recruiters become world-class insurance talent consultants. Our insurance specialists continue to stay abreast of the ever-evolving insurance marketplace and its challenges to proactively anticipate and prepare for the needs of our clients today and tomorrow.


Active in the Insurance Recruiting Community

Being active in the insurance recruiting space for 50 years has allowed us to build tremendous credibility within the industry. Our insurance recruiting specialists, as well as our executive management team, are highly involved in the insurance community. The recruiters at Jacobson  remain dedicated to actively driving the insurance industry forward. We conduct industry research, such as our highly regarded Insurance Labor Outlook Study, and frequently share our insights as speakers at industry conferences and through articles and white papers.


Focused on Results

We are proud of the impact our insurance recruitment specialists have on our client organizations. Our laser focus on the industry has led us to work differently than other contingent firms. We utilize our clients’ time wisely and present only insurance professionals who are qualified and genuinely interested in our clients’ positions. It is our intent that all candidates submitted will be interviewed by our clients. This attention to detail and dedication to quality is what makes our approach so valuable to our insurance clients.


Insurance Recruiting Process

Given our client-centric nature, The Jacobson Group's goal is not simply to fill an open insurance position, but rather to identify and recruit the insurance professional that is the best fit for each client and individual assignment. To accomplish this, we utilize a multitude of sourcing and screening strategies for every search to ensure we uncover the best-suited professional available for each insurance role. 

1) Expansive Candidate Recruiting

Capitalizing on our comprehensive insurance knowledge and thorough understanding of the client assignment, we utilize our extensive national network and database to identify all sources of available talent. We do not rely solely on resumes that are sent to us. Instead, our consultants employ a proactive recruiting approach to identify both active candidates and passive job seekers whose qualifications meet the position specifications.

2) Comprehensive Screening

As our clients’ recruiting partner, we consider it our responsibility to streamline the review process. Each candidate is thoroughly evaluated prior to being presented to the client. We first screen candidates through a detailed review of their written credentials. Promising candidates are then assessed through an extensive telephone interview to further evaluate the candidate/position match.

3) Consultative Candidate Presentation

Only the most qualified and motivated insurance professionals are presented to our clients. We present written credentials and a profile containing information collected during the candidate evaluation.

4) Hiring Process Facilitation

We provide constant feedback regarding candidate concerns and issues, coordinate phone and on-site interview logistics, and offer invaluable insight on market conditions. Our consultants facilitate and participate in the final review and selection processes to the extent that is mutually-deemed appropriate, including assistance negotiating the final compensation package.
