)-- First Investors
Corporation is looking for smart, highly motivated individuals to join its team. Recent college graduates are especially encouraged to apply.
Amid a severe recession and stock market slump, this might not seem like the ideal time to embark on a career in financial services. However, tough times create opportunities for dedicated, hard-working individuals. First Investors is a privately held, conservative company in that it focuses on a long-term, disciplined approach to investing. When it comes to building its business, First Investors relies on positive referrals and word-of-mouth. The Company believes this is the best way to serve and retain its clients.
Despite the current turmoil, First Investors has been hiring new financial services representatives and has continued to open new offices. The Company adheres to a practice of promoting from within, and has recently promoted several qualified representatives to the position of Division Manager.
No matter what the climate, the services First Investors provides its clients remain of the utmost importance. People still need to prepare for retirement, parents still want to provide for their children’s education and families and businesses still need life insurance protection.
A veteran of the industry, First Investors knows that tough times don’t last. As Robert M. Flanagan, President of First Investors Corporation, said, “First Investors was founded in the midst of the Great Depression. In the nearly 80 years since, we’ve helped our clients weather many more difficult times.” In addition, many current representatives began their careers in such times, he said. “Some of our most successful representatives joined us during the bear market of 2000-02, proving you can grow a business during a down period.”
A background in business or finance is not required to apply for the position of First Investors Financial Services Representative. In fact, many representatives have liberal arts degrees in areas as diverse as marketing, English, psychology, political science and communications. Every new First Investors representative will receive extensive training, as well as support from more experienced team members. Recent college graduates who are interested in applying are encouraged to contact their local branch office, or apply online at www.firstinvestors.com.
