Insurance Sales agents explain to clients and potential clients various forms of insurance coverage, with a view to selling the best policy or policies that fit specific needs. Discovering new potential clients while serving and developing existing clients is a key responsibility. Many administrative responsibilities follow from that, including policy renewals, creating and maintaining records, entering records into company systems, and more. Expertise in all forms of insurance offered by a company is mandatory, as are robust communication skills. Other qualifications include associate’s or bachelor’s degree and passing a licensing exam.
