  • How much writing do I need?

    Hello, everyone. I am new here.

    I have a question about the writing. How often does a actuary write, on daily base?

    I don't know anyone who doesn't write at least every day.

      It depends on how we're defining when an actuary writes something. If we're talking about communicating ideas with others, then yes - actuaries write daily, and it's critical to be able to communicate what you have to say to others who might not know what you're talking about. Even if it's a supervisor you've been working on a project for, it's critical that you can pass on whatever information you discover.

      If we're talking about actuaries writing something formal (even as mentioned above with "here's what I found with the project I did"), I wouldn't say it's every day but it's still fairly often; that depends more on the amount of work one has and the number of people who are interested in that work. Could be multiple times daily, could be once a day. The higher you are, the more you'll write.

        First, thanks Irish Blues and Ken. I mean the formal writing, does the formal writing like a research paper, very lenghty?

          As a n00b, don't worry about it. That kind of stuff would only come into play if (A) you're at least an ACAS and (b) you find a topic that hasn't been covered by someone else. And even then I think it's rare unless you're just one of those people who wants to say, "I've been published 23 times in the last 5 years!"
