We all have heard, “it’s not about what you know, it’s about who you know.” This is very true in the insurance industry if you can get to know people in the industry you will never be hurting for work.
One thing I constantly observe in future independent adjusters is that they keep coming up against two roadblocks, they don’t know enough and they don’t know anybody! This hurts your career as a claims adjuster.
I know from experience this works WAY BETTER than just the generic connection request.
Find mentors, experts, and leaders in the industry through social media and connect to them. Follow their content, see what they talk about, it’s probably relevant content that you can learn to be “in the know” quickly.
5 Things to Be in Your Career as a Claims Adjuster Faster
Be Professional – Watch what you say with your jokes, what dinner spots you choose, and amount of alcohol- Although you may be tempted to attend a certain type of night club with some of the guys (or gals), or get wasted with a group of adjusters I’d caution you to keep things professional.
Watch what you say with your jokes, what dinner spots you choose, and amount of alcohol that you consume. You want everyone to remember that you are responsible and a good person to call to work. They want to know you won’t make them look bad if called upon. A bad night singing drunk could ruin that perception.
