Allstate Insurance Co. will appoint more than 120 new agency owners this year in Texas, creating an estimated 360 new jobs across the state. Allstate recruiters are looking for candidates with a strong work ethic and management skills, including military veterans.

"Many veterans are looking for solid opportunities to become their own boss when they leave the military," said Lisa Banks, Allstate's strategic deployment leader for Texas. "They have gained exceptional leadership, decision-making and communication skills through their experience in the service, which are all important qualities in becoming a successful small business owner."

In addition to veterans, the company is looking for mid-level, mid-career candidates who are sales-driven, customer-service oriented professionals, Allstate says. These agency owners also will hire licensed sales professionals to help open and run the small businesses, which could generate 250-plus additional jobs in communities across Texas.

Allstate says 105 people will be hired in Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex; 96 will be hired in Houston/Valley; 60 in Central Texas (San Antonio-Austin); 54 in East Texas; and 30 in West Texas.
