Achieving Your Pinnacle: A Career Guide for Actuaries

eBook (ePub)
(1 Ratings)
Price: Free
Tom Miller recognized the need to write this book a few years ago, after reviewing postings on popular discussion pages frequented by actuaries. He was surprised and troubled by the magnitude of misinformation posted on these websites. Clearly actuaries and actuarial students posting this information are only trying to be helpful to one another, but they frequently lack the necessary experience and expertise to offer sound advice. Tom seeks to provide readers of his career guide with valuable insights regarding the actuarial employment market, covering topics such as choice of product specialization, how to conduct effective job searches, switching successfully from insurance to consulting and inside tips on what clients are really looking for when they interview you. Armed with deep knowledge and a unique perspective on the actuarial profession, Tom expects that this book will be a resource that will help you make better career decisions and “Achieve Your Pinnacle.”

    I am currently a senior math major who isn’t really sure what he wants to do in the near future. A friend of mine had told me about maybe becoming an actuary and I was curious to learn more about what that would entail. I bought Achieving Your Pinnacle: A Career Guide to Actuaries a few weeks ago and it was exactly what I was looking for. Tom Miller breaks down what it means to be an actuary in a way that was very informative and easy to read. The first few chapters answer the basic questions of what it takes to become an actuary and what my future career path will look like depending on what product area path I choose. Each career path is explained in great detail and also with pros and cons which I liked. Achieving your Pinnacle covers all the necessary steps it takes to become a certified actuary, from resume building to successful interviews, and even how to properly accept or decline a job offer. I would highly recommend this book to anyone looking to become an actuary.
