Claims Adjuster Advice

What do you wish you knew about your job when you first started out?

Claims Adjuster in Metairie:
"It can make you jaded."
This career can jade you. You have to learn to leave work at the office and do not take settlements personally. Settlements are business decisions!!

Claims Adjuster in New Orleans:
"Lack of upward mobility."
Be prepared to deal with other people's problems all day long. Many times, management only rewards results and hard work with more work from other people not working as hard. Get into Risk Management. Unless you can get some type of Management title, you have a ceiling that you will either quickly hit or slowly hit, depending on your company. Case loads are almost always high. My current company is great, low stress, low pending, high complexity claims, but after working for two other insurers, this is an anomaly. I have a college degree, multiple professional designations, which people above me have neither and outside of starting my own company, opportunities do seem limited. Get an engineering degree. The years of hard work in college will pay dividends later. I slacked off and am paying for it now in many ways.
