DALLAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--While a shiny new car or a plane ticket to an exotic locale may be on the wish lists of many new college graduates, GEICO is offering college grads a career opportunity that will put them on the fast track to success and a prosperous future. GEICO's office in Dallas is seeking candidates for one of its accelerated leadership programs — the Management Development Program (MDP).
MDP candidates must have a bachelor's degree, preferably in business or a related field, and at least a 3.0 cumulative undergraduate GPA from an accredited college or university. Candidates should also have demonstrated leadership experience — whether on campus, in the community or at work — and possess well-developed analytical, problem-solving and decision-making skills.
"The strong growth of both GEICO and our office here in Dallas have been possible because we've had outstanding leaders guiding the organization," said Bob Miller, GEICO regional vice president. "Because of our growth, there is now a real opportunity for a new class of leaders to come in and help take GEICO to even greater heights. Our Management Development Program gives participants the tools and training they need to build successful management careers. We're excited to bring on some fresh faces with new ideas."
Associates in the Dallas office's leadership program receive industry-leading training and on-the-job experience in sales, customer service or claims.
