To get a job as an adjuster, you must have a high school diploma or a bachelor's degree in finance or a related field. Also, you must possess superior communication and negotiation skills. Furthermore, you must have in-depth knowledge of spreadsheet software. With these, you will earn an average of $40,150 per year or $19.3 per hour.
