Job Description for Insurance Sales Agent

An insurance sales agent is a person who helps individuals choose a policy that most closely fits their needs. The sales agent will typically represent and work for an individual company, but independent agents who represent many smaller insurance entities exist as well. In any event, these sales-oriented employees help to match up individuals with home, car, and life insurance policies that offer acceptable coverage to the consumer and provide a profit to the company. In some cases, the sales agent may also be the first contact when an insured person needs to file a claim.
