NORTHBROOK, Ill., June 10 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Allstate Insurance Company is hosting their annual virtual career fair on Tuesday, June 15, with a focus on attracting professionals interested in starting their own business in a recession-resilient industry.

Allstate sees an opportunity in the current economy to attract mid-career, mid-level managers with financial or sales backgrounds to own and operate their own business and represent the insurer as exclusive agents or personal financial representatives.

"We're seeking people who have a combination of entrepreneurial spirit and superior customer service to represent Allstate," said Stephen Scholl, assistant vice president of human resources for Allstate. "In our effort to attract the right people to represent the Allstate brand, our virtual career fair gives candidates the opportunity to have live chats with recruiters, set up a phone interview and submit their resumes."

Allstate's online recruiting event will feature "virtual booths" representing Allstate regions across the country. Representatives will be available for the online job fair between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. CST to answer questions from prospective candidates about the opportunities and careers available.
