Resume
A college degree is great, but it is also very over-rated. Most employers see a degree as a four year initiation you survived. All it does is tell them that you stuck with it and suffered through a lot of work to graduate. It does, however, give them a clue as to who you are. And it is believed your overall intelligence was increased due to the four years of intense mental exercise.

.
But does a degree really prepare you for a job? Having a background in your chosen field is certainly helpful, however, there are very few jobs that you can start working straightaway solely on the strength of a college degree. (FYI, if you majored in Gender Studies or Social Justice, keep that to yourself!) Regardless of what you majored in, you are going to have to go through a training period before you can start work.

.
Consider the actual work you will be performing, then include all of your life experiences that compliment those activities and skills. As an Insurance Claims Adjuster, you are going to be working by yourself in harsh and challenging conditions. It will be a stressful environment requiring a ‘make-it-happen’ attitude. You will be examining all types of property damage while dealing with people that are in different stages of panic. So what in your background makes you a candidate worthy of being placed on an Adjuster Firm’s roster?

.
I have actually been told by a person at one of these firms that having a Military background is preferable to a College degree. The Military teaches you to be self reliant, dependable, hard working with a disciplined work ethic. These traits are especially appreciated in this type of work.

.
Have you ever been a counselor or had any experience in psychology? Any HR work? Have you ever worked in construction? Have you ever hung drywall? Framing? Plumbing? Electrical? Roofing? Painting? Brick or Tile? Swimming pool construction? Fencing? Auto body work? Landscaping? Computer skills are always a plus.

.
One of the primary reasons Adjusters quit is because the conditions are more extreme than they were ready for. Such as, time away from home, difficulty finding a place to sleep each night, power outages, downed cell towers, harsh weather, dangerous working conditions, a work environment that constantly changes, etc. So if you are the type that actually thrives under these challenges, do everything you can in your resume to get that point across! Make sure they see you as an individual that prides himself on overcoming obstacles despite challenges that would derail the average person. Make them understand that you are dependable and will never quit before the job is done!

Interested in becoming an Adjuster? You will need either the All Lines  or  Property & Casualty license. This website offers both licenses, and they are TEXAS licenses, which gives you an almost nation wide reach having reciprocity in over 30 states! It doesn’t matter where you are from, to be a successful Adjuster, you will want a TEXAS license.
