News : Sallie Mae Plans to Hire 100 Locally
HANOVER TWP., June 21, 2012 -- Another local employer has announced it has dozens of positions to fill.
Sallie Mae, a student loan servicing company with a call center in the Hanover Industrial Estates, announced Wednesday it will host a job fair with plans to hire 100 full-time employees. The company already employs about 800 at its local call center.
Interested applicants are encouraged to bring a resume and be prepared for a possible first interview with a member of Sallie Mae’s management team. Computer kiosks will be available to individuals who wish to complete the company’s online job application. Also, representatives from Sallie Mae will hold information sessions throughout the day to answer questions and help applicants better understand the positions available.
In April, Sallie Mae celebrated 25 years in the region.
The Newark, Del.-based company follows others that have recently announced plans to hire.
Last week, global insurance company Cigna said it would hire approximately 160 customer service associates for its Moosic call center between now and October. Interested candidates can apply via Cigna’s website. Cigna will sponsor several open houses this summer where job seekers can submit resumes and learn more about open positions.
In late May, Portland, Maine-based Emery-Waterhouse said it is expanding its distribution operation within CenterPoint Commerce & Trade Park East in Jenkins Township and would hire 40 to 60 new employees. The company was looking to fill day-shift and second-shift warehouse positions, including selectors, loaders, receivers and replenishment positions available beginning the first week of June.
