How can you become a car insurance agent?
How can I become a car insurance agent later in life? I have been working in the furniture business for the past 25 years and need to make a change. I know it's a little late to start a new career, but I want something more stable.
It is never too late to start something new, and becoming an insurance agent is a stable, accessible career! If you’d like to become an insurance agent, identify your insurance field of interest and start researching your state’s licensing requirements.
The two most popular fields are property and casualty, which respectively cover auto, home, and business coverage and life insurance. That being said, auto insurance is probably the most stable field. People are legally required to buy car insurance if they want to drive—so it’s always in demand.
Before you shell out money for the required licensing course, see what insurance companies hire in your area. Several top-named companies might pay for training as well as your licensing class and license fee. Since you’ve been in sales for so long, you’ve already got a very desirable skillset for most providers!
While you’re looking at different insurance companies, take a minute to learn what types of insurance you have. Doing so can help you learn more about the field and you might even save some money!
