Meaning of "Agent" as Occupation in Vienna #general


Dear JewishGenners,

I'm hoping to learn what an occupation means. I have found someone in
Vienna city directories >from 1902 to 1923, always listed simply as
"Agent." Google Translate tells me that means "agent" or "operative",
which isn't very descriptive. Can anyone tell me what kind of work an
"Agent" would do in Vienna in the early 20th century?

Thank you very much in advance for your assistance.
