  • How's your job hunting going?

    The actuarial job market looks a bit better than last year. So do have guys have problems landing entry level positions?

    I know that the past three years people graduating from my university have had no problems landing entry level jobs.

        You might consider looking for a job before you move if you're moving because you can't find a job. Maybe consider NY, CT, and Chicago?

          How easy is it to move around the country and find jobs within this profession? I am changing careers (I have been working as a CPA for the past 5 years and plan on maintaining my CPA license) to actuary (take the first two exams this fall). My husband is military, which translates into moving every 2-4 years for the next 15 years. Is this a career stopper?

            It's possible. It depends on the type of company. I wouldn't apply to many small insurance/consulting companies. The small companies are looking for longevity - it's not economically feasible for them to spend time and resources training students and having them pick up shop and leave in a short time frame. It will be hard to pick up requisite experience if you're perceived to move quickly.

            Good luck with your job search.

              I had no luck finding an entry level job for the past two months

                How many exams have you passed?
                I'm worried that success on P and FM will not be enough to get me a job this summer.

                  This probably isn't that helpful but I see a banner at the top for PacifiCare that says, "Immediate Actuarial Opportunities! - Entry Level to Director Level - click here." Give it a try.

                    I think it is really hard to get an entry in Canada. It seems situation in Canada is quite different with in US.
