Unless you have had experience as a home insurance adjuster, then no, won't be considered. To become an adjuster, you need to be trained on coverage, policy and liability and in many states have to be licensed to do this.
Most adjusting jobs are in an office. The company has to set you up with the computer equipment that is linked to the home office computer and other office equipment that costs them money. Any home insurance jobs are only given to experienced adjusters that live in areas that the insurance company needs someone to go to inspect, vs hiring an "independent" adjuster to do.
If no experience, could try and find a job with an "independent" adjusting firm, but many of them work on commission, so can work 24/7 for weeks after a hurricane/tornado, then not have work (money) till another big catastrophie.

I suggest you talk to some local home insurance adjusters. It's a really hard field to break into.

John Lincoln is not saying don't do it. He's saying he doesn't have any advice. I don't know John but my hunch is he is wondering why someone is asking a bunch of strangers about something that is a highly personal decision based on many factors we can't possibly know. It is 100% guaranteed that many people enjoy that job and also 100% that some people can't stand it.
