I have been in the adjusting business since 1997 and I am 38 years old. I have been in management, I have worked at shops and as an independent adjuster. My advice to you is not to go any further in this field.
Lets say you do decide to move further then I would suggest getting to know the All-State adjuster who comes into your shop. All-State will give you several months of training and many people stay on with them for many years finally retiring with good benefits. The only way into All-State is by recommendation. Do not get involved with the Geicos, the Progressives, etc.
My strong suggestion to you would be to move somewhere like Texas and get into the oil industry. As an entry-level adjuster at an insurance company you might make 45000, if that, where as many entry-level oil jobs pay at least 60 or more.
Whatever you do, adjusting is not the answer. Ask any insurance company adjuster who walks through the door of that shop. If they say they like it, watch their facial expression;)
