"So, when we learned that an insurance carrier had plans to downsize its Chattanooga location, it seemed like a great opportunity for Answer to acquire experienced team members while keeping this skilled group of professionals employed." Answer Financial worked in close cooperation with the carrier to effectively transition the group to the company's new Chattanooga operation. The office will broaden the company's recruiting reach, providing access to a new talent pool while also strengthening Answer Financial's presence in the Tennessee area. To support the growing demand for its services, Answer Financial intends to hire 15 additional sales agents based in Chattanooga in the next 90 days, along with another 100 employees in Knoxville over the next 12-24 months. Answer Financial is a leading provider of insurance comparison and sales services, giving consumers the choice to shop, compare, and buy insurance online and over the phone with the help of an agent. Interested candidates are encouraged to visit Answer Financial's career fair on Wednesday, February 20th from 9AM to 6PM at the Hilton Garden Inn on Shallowford Road, email their resumes to firstname.lastname@example.org or apply online at www.answerfinancial.com/careers.
