October has been another busy month for our recruiters, as we have added 20 new members to our American Fidelity team. Ready to serve the education industry, we have six new account reps in the American Fidelity Educational Services Division (AFES). In our Association Worksite Division (AWD) we have hired one new account manager. At our Home Office in Oklahoma City, we have 12 new AFA Colleagues. One of these Colleagues joined our Strategic Alliances division as a para actuary. Brian Gatewood joined our team just a couple of weeks ago. He has already dove into his position of reviewing and reporting budgets and giving input on layouts for a new benefit plan. I talked with Brian to find out why he chose American Fidelity and to get his advice for future job seekers. Brian interned with AFA while attending school at the University of Central Oklahoma. He enjoyed the different people and tasks he was involved with while interning, and the friendly atmosphere created an environment that he looked forward to work each day. He just couldn’t pass up the opportunity to become full time! When I asked Brian what he likes most about working at AFA so far, his answer was easy – the people. “I think it is the people who work for AFA that make the Company great,” Brian said. “I feel like I can openly ask anyone questions and that I will receive a patient, constructive response. It’s one of the reasons I look forward to work each day…the people!” So naturally, Brian’s advice for future job seekers is to find a workplace that promotes growth and treats you like one of the family.
