    After a protracted and fruitless job search I am beginning to think that a career as an actuary may not be in the cards for me. I’m not giving but I want to broaden my search. What else can I do with the mathematics I have learned preparing to be an actuary other than be an actuary?

    Underwriting comes to mind.
    Perhaps finance, accounting, book keeping, analyst, economics are areas to look into as well? Finding something in a consulting firm also is a possibility.

    I actually was offered a job with a company that had a subsidiary company that had recently merged with or acquired an actuarial consulting firm. My original plan was to go the long way. Work in a financial analyst role for the company (the job was really just working on reconciliations for a large project) All the while studying for exams and trying to transfer over to the actuarial consultants when I had 3 exams under my belt.

    Wasn't a bad plan but I was eventually offered an actuarial specialist position elsewhere.

    Something to consider!

    Hope that helps!
