Adjusting 101: Invest in yourself with an affordable education that pays up to six figures!
Are you trying to figure out your future? Are you looking to make a change? Do you want a real career with six-figure potential that is not multi-level marketing, a passing fad, or a Ponzi scheme? I want to invite you to invest in yourself and in one of the few careers with top earning potential and a minimal financial investment in learning it. I am talking about insurance adjusting. I am talking about Adjust U and Adjusting 101, a two-week course that requires a comparative miniscule monetary investment and offers tons of opportunity for financial reward and professional development.
Speaking of education, here are some sobering (if not staggering) figures regarding the average cost of tuition for a four-year degree, take from educationdata.org…
Tuition and fees make up the bulk of most college students’ educational expenses.
- The average cost of attendance at any 4-year institution is $25,362.
- The average cost of tuition at any 4-year institution is $20,471.
- At public 4-year institutions, the average in-state tuition and required fees total $9,308 per year; out-of-state tuition and fees average $26,427.
- At private 4-year institutions, the average tuition and fees at a nonprofit college total $35,801 annually; at for-profit institutions, tuition and fees average $15,156 annually.
- The average cost of tuition and fees at any 2-year institution is $6,379.
- At public 2-year institutions, or community colleges, in-district tuition and fees average $3,412 annually; the average for in-state students is $4,444, while out-of-state students pay an average of $8,516.
- At private 2-year institutions, students pay $17,128 in annual tuition and fees to attend nonprofit schools; for-profit colleges charge $15,821.
Think about it! We are talking about a four-year commitment of your life at an average cost of $45,000 per year. That is a minimum $180,000 investment. Unless you have well-to-do parents, you are coming out of this experience saddled with massive debt, gripping a degree that will land you a position making…. how much?
Well, according to bestaccreditedcolleges.org, average potential earning power breaks down as follows (as of 2019):
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, in 2019, an individual’s median weekly average salary without a high school degree was $606 (or $31,512 annually). An individual with a high school diploma had a median weekly average salary of $749 (or $38,948 annually). An individual with some college or an associate’s degree had a median average weekly salary of $874 (or $45,448 annually). The average salary of someone with a bachelor’s degree had a median weekly income of $1,281 (or $66,612 annually). Individuals with advanced degrees such as masters, professional, or doctorate had a median average weekly salary of $1,559 (or $81,068 annually).
According to ziprecruiter.com, the average independent insurance adjuster makes $63,000/year. That is the average! But 13% of independent insurance adjusters make more than $100,000 per year. I know that our best field adjusters often earn well into six figures on a single major event. Our desk adjusters will typically earn $300-$700 per day on a deployment.
I cannot think of another industry where the educational investment is as small and the potential payoff as great as it is for the independent insurance adjuster.
