Insurance industry is one of the most complicated and many-sided spheres of service industries and an insurance agent's workday is usually packed up with a wide range of activities which reflect both versatility and complexity of insurance business.

It is absolutely necessary for an insurance agent to be knowledgeable about the changes in the industry, all the innovations on the insurance market and the types of coverage his / her competitors provide their clients with in order to be able to offer a high standard of service at competitive rates. That is why part of an agent's daily schedule is spent in research.

Another compulsory activity which makes up an insurance agent's day is networking.
