Education and Training Requirements

High School

Take courses in business, mathematics, and accounting to prepare for the management aspects of an agent's job. Take English and speech courses to develop good communication skills because an agent must be gifted at negotiation. Agents also need a good eye for talent, so it's important to develop some expertise in film, theater, art, literature, advertising, or another specialty field.
