I am exploring the idea of becoming an adjuster. I am not really looking for a 9 to 5 job.?
I would be interested in doing cat work, but when the catastrophe is over, just go home and do local work for the rest of the time. As far as I can tell a Texas all lines license is preferable . I live in north east Texas. I need a game plan as for what to do first. Do I need to get license before I talk to companies ? What ,in your opinion are the best companies to look at. Considering my location. I would like to stay flexible ,if possible and work for different companies. Thanks for any input.

There is no other job in the insurance industry with a higher turn over rate. While your work is extremely important your work load is usually through the roof and the burn out rate is high. You will never become rich being an adjuster. You'll probably lose your mind first.
