A state agency just granted Jackson National Life Insurance $3 million in grant money to continue to hire locally. This will allow Jackson National Life to move forward with hiring an additional 300 to 700 jobs in the next few years.

Jackson National Life Insurance is opening their doors now for hundreds of local employees looking for work. Jackson National life fell short of their hiring goal a little while ago but with the new grant will allow them to hire hundreds of employees at their corporate offices in Lansing.

A lot of the jobs will be in the IT section but there will be many openings in different sectors of the company. More on the story from WLNS
