Billingual Adjusters in Big Demand
While I haven’t had time for a blog entry today, I wanted to remind adjusters that their Billingual skills are very important to carrier and adjusting firms. We have approximately 100 adjusters who have commented on it on their resume.
If you have billingual skills and that is not on your resume, please resend your resume asap to Debbie@Dimechimes.com and put Billingual in the subject field with your last name and state then make sure your resume includes your billingual information. Please make sure you have read our blog entry on adjusters resumes here before submitting information required for consideration.
You’d be amazed at how much that can increase your odds of deploying in some territories not only with our firm but with adjusting firms and carriers.We received a staffing request in 2005 that requested we deploy all licensed adjusters whether experienced or not that were billingual. The inexperienced were used in the adjusting firm and carriers offices as interpreters.
Should you not have billingual skills, you might find some of these services helpful if your adjusting firm does not have services available when communicating with an insured that does not speak English .Many experienced adjusters also advise they will hire local temps to travel with them to appointments to act as interpreters. Trainee adjusters- this may be the perfect opportunity for you to train with an experienced field adjuster by offering your billingual translation services as you ride along with them for training.

If you look on the Products and Services tab- this can be used by individuals who have infrequent needs (listed as personal service) and also another plan for businesses such as independent adjusting firms under the business plan.
We’ll add others next week. We hope everyone has a great weekend! See you Monday!
