Networking as an Independent Adjuster News item posted on : Wednesday February 10th 2021
Why is networking important as an independent insurance adjuster?
A difficult part of being an independent adjuster, for both established and new adjusters, is generating leads and connections with IA firms. Having a strong network and connection with people in this industry can open doors in your career that would have stayed closed otherwise. Deployment and claim opportunities can come as a result of knowing somebody and getting your foot in the door with IA firms. Do not overlook this important step as it can help increase the claims available to you.
According to the Merriam-Webster dictionary, networking is described as the exchange of information or services among individuals, groups, or institutions; specifically: the cultivation of productive relationships for employment of business.
Networking builds relationships. Having good working relationships within the industry helps improve your work ethic as well as the amount of work you receive. Networking gives you the opportunity to get in front of an IA firm. This will help establish a relationship that could benefit you, and hopefully put you on their radar, leading to more work opportunities.
Establish yourself as a part of the independent adjuster community. It is very important to network with other adjusters. Get to know other independent adjusters through Facebook, LinkedIn or in the field. Creating positive relationships with other independent adjusters and IA firms is an effective way to find more work opportunities.
To gain work in this industry people need to know and trust you. You can work on both of these by networking.
There are many ways to network with adjusters in your community and adjusters across the nation. Starting local, join your local claims association chapter. This is a great place to meet other adjusters and professionals in this field. To access a list of chapters, visit: Claims Associations – Insurance Claims Tools & Databases (claimspages.com)
To network with adjusters on a larger scale, join Facebook groups. In these groups’ adjuster chat with each other, IA firms post about training opportunities and hiring new adjusters, plus so much more. Some great groups to join to get you started are Independent Adjuster Network, Adjuster Central, New Adjusters, Adjusting Professionals.
