Insurance Agents work for insurance companies and reach out to new and existing clients to sell insurance. Insurance agents call clients and potential clients to grow their customer base, meet with potential clients to get information about their needs and coverage, match insurance policies to their needs and explain the options to customers.

Insurance agents make sure policies stay current and make amendments to the policy as life changes. Types of insurance that agents work with include property and casualty, life, health and long-term care. In addition, agents help their clients settle any claims on their insurance.

Having a friendly attitude, strong knowledge of insurance policies and being active in expanding your customer base are all key components to successful insurance agents. Agents can work independently or for a large insurance company.
