Allstate reports heightened demand for auto and home insurance

Allstate is looking to fill some 1,000 jobs in its mid-Atlantic region; specifically Delaware, District of Columbia, Maryland, Virginia and West Virginia. “This region’s strong economy is fueling our expansion in our Mid-Atlantic states. We are seeing increased consumer demand for auto and home insurance as well as financial advice and planning,” said Jennifer Yingling, Recruiting Director for Allstate’s Capital Region. The news follows similar announcements made by GEICO and Erie last year. Off on a Tangent: the Allstate blog is experiencing a drop in eyeballs.

Progressive with its Life Lanes blog is right behind it.

Bottom Line: It rarely pays off to blog about insurance.
