LINDON, Utah--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sep 12, 2018--GoHealth, a leading 17-year-old high-growth, technology-driven health insurance marketplace with U.S. headquarters in Chicago, is expanding rapidly at its new location in Lindon. The company hired 400+ employees in the past six weeks and plans to fill another 200 positions by mid-October, fulfilling the company’s pledge to fill 600 new positions before the 2019 open enrollment period begins.

Wages for these positions in aggregate are expected to exceed 110 percent of the Salt Lake County average wage. Job openings include specialists and advisors to help individuals through the decision-making process of selecting health plans that best match their needs, including those people who are enrolling in Medicare plans. Multi-lingual speakers are also needed, and the company pays for and trains employees for all necessary licensing requirements and certifications.

There is an excellent opportunity for a wide range of potential employees, ranging from career-seekers to parents looking for seasonal work to seniors desiring extra income and an interesting “second career.” GoHealth has a long history of promoting internally to help agents grow within the company; it has several director-level employees who started with the company as agents.

“For anyone looking for a high-growth career, GoHealth gives you the opportunity to get into a massive, growing marketplace with incredible potential,” said Clint Jones, CEO of GoHealth. “We provide everything you will need to succeed, including training and education for licensing.
