With about a year and a half on the Actuarial Outpost, and having not met any user in person, I was surviving in my second Exam Committee game, Beneath the Planet of the Exam Committee. The ghosts, players who were already dead but were able to haunt the living, were trying to match the remaining players to the profiles they had set up for the two EC.

And so there came to be this thread:

Trying to get into the actuarial field again

Posted 03-10-2011 at 03:09 PM by Lao

I graduated many years ago and tried to get into the actuarial field... I ended up passing all the preliminary exams, but couldn't find a job anywhere.

I worked a series of shit jobs that paid $10-$12 an hour over the years, then had it and went back to school to study accounting. I got the accounting degree, but ended up HATING accounting. It's nothing like actuarial. It's mostly about categorizing and presenting past financial transactions. The only thing I was even mildly...

Dealing with Reserves

Posted 02-20-2011 at 10:51 PM by cat060 (Road to ASA)

I was quite apprehensive of the reserves material but seem to be enjoying it as I navigate the section. Understanding reserves requires a thorough understanding of insurance, annuities & premiums. Hope to finish life contigencies material by 3/7.
