Why Insurance Jobs Are Some Of The Best Sales Jobs Around
Insurance sales allows you to make a great living, do it with great freedom. You just have to be willing to work hard.

About half of insurance agents work for an independent insurance agency or brokerage, and sell the products of many insurance companies. Nearly 20 percent are self-employed. Others work for direct insurance carriers. Commissions are an important source of income for most agents, although a smaller number hold salaried positions. Agents spend considerable time developing and pursuing sales leads. Consumer policy agents do a lot of telephone and office work, while commercial agents are more likely to be out in the field with customers. Independent agents who work for a brokerage may have irregular hours, but they also have more control over their work schedules than agents who work for an insurance company or spend most of their time in an office. There tends to be a lot of turnover in this career because many new agents struggle to earn sufficient commission income and switch to other occupations.
Prospects for insurance agents are closely tied to the growth of the broader economy. The Bureau of Labor Statistics projects insurance agent employment growth of nearly 10 percent between 2016 and 2026. That’s an additional 48,600 jobs that should open up before the end of that time period.
