Inside Look

Alumni Spotlight: Will Baker

Will Baker

I graduated in December 2016, was hired as a Claims Representative in January 2017, and made the move to Denver, Colo. Through the seven months of claims adjusting and working from home, I became unhappy with working from home, and began to view claims adjusting as a job and not a career. I knew it was time to look for a change.
