Ex Police Officer Find Success in 2nd Career as an Auto Damage Appraiser
Manage episode 352020385 series 2524825
Chad Burnett graduated from IA Path in September of 2021 and immediately began getting work as an adjuster. He had been a police officer for 21 years and transitioned into this new career. He loves the work he is doing now as an IA.
Chad became an insurance adjuster because he wanted a change of pace after 20 years as a police officer. He knew he could get a pension from the city, and he started looking for a new job. He found insurance adjusting through a Google search, and he watched Matt Allen's Adjuster TV to learn more about the profession.
Chad talks about his journey from being a cop to becoming an auto appraiser. The hardest part for him was figuring out all the different parts of the car. He talks about how he has not had a day where he hasn't had a claim in the 14 months since he started and how there is plenty of business. He shares he learns something new every day and that the appraisal industry is much simpler than being a cop.
In the conversation, the speaker talks about his biggest challenge with being an insurance adjuster, which is travel. He has learned to say no to some people for these long distance that are two to three-hour trips away. And that has cleared his slate a lot for opening up a lot more around here, making my cycle time a heck of a lot lower.
