Let’s get to know Jackie!
What made you want to work as a Field Marketing Manager for California Casualty?
I was stuck at a desk job, I typed in the word “field” to Indeed and CalCas popped up! As soon as I read who we cater to, I wanted in!
What is your favorite part about your job?
My favorite part about my job is the ability to make connections and long-lasting friendships with those who I work with in the field
I love the freedom of working in the field! Being stuck in the house (COVID-19) definitely created its challenges, but it sparked a whole new mindset and I feel as if I have thrived from it.
What have you learned in your position at California Casualty?
The most useful information…I am not entirely sure. I know that I was horrible at and dreaded making small talk. I’d just never learned to be comfortable with it throughout my life. This job has taught me how to effortlessly make small talk, and then turn it into a great opportunity!
What are your favorite activities to do outside of the office?
My favorite activities used to be in-person NEO’s, it was such a rush! Now, my favorite activity is social media mass marketing! Seeing how many people have actually looked at the post or took the time to like/comment on it is a rush!
