Abstract: The global economy saw a sharp decrease as a result of the COVID-19 coronavirus’s proliferation. Numerous businesses, particularly those that deliver in-person services, had to temporarily close due to the exceptional measures taken to contain the outbreak, such as lockdowns. The feeling and impression of one’s own professional achievement in proportion to one’s personal self-set criteria is known as career satisfaction. A career in the Indian Insurance sector can not only be quite challenging but also rewarding. The Covid-19 heavily affected the regular income of both salaried and non-salaried class people. In this circumstance, the insurance agents faced certain difficulties such as, collecting premium from policy holders, getting new policy and settling the policy claim on time. Overall, the aforementioned challenges undoubtedly had an impact on the insurance advisor’s ability to accomplish his or her career goals, including those for income, progress, and the acquisition of new skills. In context with the above topic, this short-term research paper attempts to reveal the career satisfaction between Male and Female Insurance agents of LIC during this pandemic period.
