    Hi everyone. I'm new to adjusting. I was a sales producer for an agency in my hometown for a few years, until my sales went downhill after the housing market did the same. A relative was able to get me in with Eberl's as a groundman for a 2 story and steep team in Louisville, KY. Purdy good gig, lasted almost six months, got there right after Hurricane Ike in October and was released at the first of April. Just recently took my certification exams for State Farm, and of course Eberl's knows I'm ready to be deployed, but I've been sitting at the house since April 4, and I'm ready to get back out there.

    Any of you veterans got any tips for a newbie like myself? I've got my resume in with the other companies I know contract with State Farm...Worley, Pilot, Renfroe. 

    Are there any companies that I can send my resume to where the insurance company may not require a company certification...for example, a company that contracts with the Hartford, or something like that?

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    Hi Andrew. Unfortunately, I don't have any advice other than to keep doing what you are doing right now. It's slow for everyone right now, so patience is the answer.

    Howdy Andrew,
    I too am new to adjusting after having owned 3 bookstores here in the Houston, TX area for the past 10yrs. Now that most folks don't read much any more-other than internet and articles needed for their jobs, I had to close down last year and take up adjusting. It has been fun and I think that is the best advice I can offer you at this point in your new career-have fun/enjoy the learning experience/ and give it everything you can so when you do get deployed you have the training to do a better than ok job of it. There are still a few IA Firms having annual conferences-such as Crawford. Find them on line and sign up. Get XM8 training,be willing to spend some money on your education-since getting my lic last year, I've spent about $3,000 on classes, certifications, and various state licenses. Just remember "buyer beware". There are a ton of companies out there that offer training, but many are over priced, other just have poor instructors. I have make many new friends in this business and have heard so many horror stories about how they spent thousands of dollars with various companies promising them a job once they do that companies' training, then still haven't worked.......Read what the 'old timers' have to say both here at CATO & ClaimsMentor sites. Lots of insite you won't get without years of experience.Good luck.
