    It makes you feel kinda small, not to be needed. Don,t feel like you you are alone, thousands just like you and no one helps their fellow starving adjusters.

    Its the nature of the beast Guy. If you aren't in the top 5% of the IA. for a vendor you are out of luck right now.
      if you have Daily claims feel blessed.
      I use to be on the top for a major vendor and always got called first took 7 years off to stay home raising my family. I have been trying to get back in it since last fall and have only had 1 deployment.
      I just talked to a friend who has been in it for 30 years now and he has had 1 hail storm this year.
    I thought w/ over 11 years past experience I would have a shoe in . That is not the case. Some of the companies have been hiring new adjusters and paying them 40% and pocketing the difference. I guess I am over qualified and they figure they would have to pay me more. 40% is a slap in the face not to mention you can't break even .
      They will tell you if you have more state licenses you will be deployed quicker. I have 14 different state licenses, multiple certifications for different perils,
    I use xactimate, I am certified w/ four different carriers . I am sending out applications almost daily. They don't say it but i am 61 which they figure may be to old I don't know. I have even offered to teach new adjusters for the vendors but to no avail.
      Like I said earlier if you are getting daily claims feel very blessed.

    Jerry. this is a biz for young people. I worked my first storm for Pilot in the spring of 1990 in a moster hail storm in Denver and I was born in 1931. I did real good. Cuitis Pilot was the person who interviewed  me on the phone and said come on up. I remember his comments to me, "you are good for an older guy" and also to the other 75 adjusters. You are only as good as your last storm... thats true 1 agent, broker or supervisior can put ypu on the do not call list.... UNLESS all the young guys are gone. Why needs people with less than 5 years of full time adjusting experience and under 50.... not many.
