A business agent is often a term, commonly used by labor unions, for an official representing a company. It’s most commonly a full time, paid position, and is also sometimes used to refer to the corporate representative, whose duty it is to negotiate contracts for both the company and its employees. It can also be abbreviated B.A., or B.T.B.. However, it’s not always necessary to have a B.A. degree to become a business-agent, so don’t let that scare you off. Here are just a few tips:

The first thing you should do is prepare yourself with a list of your business agent’s duties. You need to know exactly what each one entails, and also what you want to get out of this position. For example, you may want to make sure that your agent negotiates contracts and representation fees between you and your clients, and can act as your face in negotiations. It’s also a good idea to have someone else look over the contracts you’ll be signing with your clients and see how they would do them, too.
You may even want to hire a lawyer or financial adviser who has been through a B.A. degree program in business administration at a community college, which will prepare you well for the job and teach you everything you need to know about the job you’re applying for. So long as your B.A. is accredited, and you meet the other requirements, you’re in good shape.
