The future is uncertain, and therefore risky. Accidents and other unforeseen events happen suddenly. Actuaries help manage this risk for insurance companies and other businesses and government agencies. Actuaries must qualify by passing a series of several exams over several years.
An actuarial career demands an ability to analyze data, with strong capabilities in statistics and probability. Recent graduates working in this area accepted jobs with AllState, CNO Financial, Ernst & Young, Mercer, OneAmerica, and other companies.
