Starting out at a national company
I am a middle aged guy with lots of work experience, most recently as a small business owner in a home construction, real estate related field. With the downturn in the real estate market, I am now looking to return to a corporate environment. My experience led me to believe that I might make a good property claims rep. I have sent several resumes to some of the local offices of national companies, some of whom have advertised for claims rep trainees. As yet, I haven't gotten a phone call.
Can any of you give me some advice on what experience claims managers are looking for? While I am at it, what is starting pay for a claims trainee in the midwest/Great Lakes area? Could it be that managers are just assuming I am going to ask for too much money?
