Jackson National comes to Houghton

The MTEC SmartZone is welcoming yet another Fortune 500 company to the Copper Country.

Jackson National Life Insurance is a multi-billion dollar company, and it’s recruited Michigan Tech students to its Lansing office for years.

Now with a satellite office in the Lakeshore Center in Houghton, students can work part-time for the company while still in school.

The office just opened in January and has already hired 19 employees, with plans to expand and hire more.
