I am a very experience pdrp estimator and will be receiving my Texas All Lines License in a few weeks. I am looking to get to the Sandy region. I am willing to go work for anyone needing assistance scoping and entering claim losses. I am also capable of taking a claim from assignment to closing. If anyone can help me "break in" I would really really appreciate the help.
Kudos to you for being pro-active. Nevertheless, you probably won't have much luck until you have your Texas license in hand. Hopefully, you are a resident of Texas because unless that adjuster's license is a resident adjuster's license, you will have a tough time to get licensed in any other state. If you are NOT a Texas resident and have taken the Texas course because your home state does NOT license adjusters, you will have to designate Texas as your home state for licensing purposes.
In the future for other adjusters who aren't texas residents but their own state does NOT license adjusters, foklks should consider Indiana as a designated home state. You can get your license much quicker and less hurdles to clear and can have license in hand in 3 to 5 days after you either sit for the exam or take the classroom or online course as opposed to multiple weeks from Texas or Florida to go through the process.
It should be stated that there is work for almost anyone with a pulse (and adjuster's license(s) right now) If you are solid with XM8, I suggest you grab the level 2 and level 3 XM8 certification. That WILL set you apart from the ranks of the rookie adjusters entering the industry through Sandy. With that cert on your resume, a higher level IA firm will prolly give you a chance. You don't want to be a part of the group of rookie adjusters who will cut their teeth on Sandy and get BURNED for monies owed. Going with a second or third tier vendor will carry that risk.
If your NOT solid with XM8 take these next few weeks and get solid. You can do it!!
Good luck to all of you and may god bless you all and keep you all safe
