OLDWICK, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--In this A.M.BestTV episode at the annual conference of the National Association of Independent Insurance Adjusters, in Lake Tahoe, NV, attendees said the sector must emphasize recruiting and internships in order to attract new talent.

“I believe we are going to have to do a better job as an industry in recruiting,” said John Henderson, vice president, operations, Wickizer and Clutter. “Getting out to the campuses, we need to get our message out there as to what insurance adjusters really do. If the industry is able to overcome that hurdle, as well as continue to embrace technology, then I believe we will be able to get past these challenges.”
T. Mark Nixon, principal, CMI Nixon and Company, said promoting the industry as an exciting, life-long profession remains a challenge.
“It has become more and more challenging to interest young people in this industry,” said Nixon. “There are a lot of people that are simply not interested in insurance claims. Therefore, we need to show them that it is a good profession and something that is a life-long skill set.”
