  • Cover letters

    Anyone know what an actuarial cover letter should look like? I don't want to just reiterate what's already on my resumé. What are the most important things that should go on a cover letter? Knowledge of the company, why you would like to work for the company, why you want to be an actuary, etc. etc...

    Mine looked pretty much like a standard cover letter. You're not really repeating what's on your resume - you're expanding on what you've good that shows you're capable of doing good work, what you know about the company you're applying to, and how you can help them get even better.

    I don't know that a standard cover letter would have to be altered just because it refers to an actuarial position. It just needs to be tailored to you and the employer who will get it. has some good tips on cover letters, I used them to write mine.
