    The start of a new year can spark a desire to make a career change. Additionally, the COVID-19 pandemic has encouraged many people to look for more flexible and secure jobs. For those with a self-starter spirit looking for a change, why not consider becoming an insurance sales agent, or even building your own business as an insurance agency owner?

    The 2022 U.S. News and World Report rankings on the Best Jobs speaks for itself. Insurance sales agent ranks as No. 3 in the Best Sales and Marketing Jobs, and in the Top 100 for the Best Jobs overall.

    What are the benefits of being an insurance sales agent?

    1. Recession-proof. One of the most prominent benefits of being an insurance sales agent is the industry itself—everyone needs insurance year-round, so the industry is recession-proof. No matter what is going on in the economy, customers will always need coverage.

    2. Impact. Ultimately, insurance sales agents are providing a needed service to customers, giving them peace of mind knowing they have adequate coverage should emergencies or incidents occur. This grants a sense of fulfillment to insurance sales agents.

    3. Unlimited earnings. Insurance sales agents can earn commission on new policies and renewed policies, offering sizable earning potential.
