JOB ALERT! Entry Level Position in Kirkland, WA

The HR Director at Conover Insurance contacted the GU Career Center & GAMP notifying us of an entry level admin/reception position in their Kirkland office.

Although this position is entry level, Conover often promotes employees to other departments when there is an opening and the individual expresses an interest in a particular department (i.e. financial services vs. employee benefits vs. tax vs. commercial insurance).
