I decided that I wanted to become an actuary after I graduated from college(about 6 months ago). I have not been working full time and sat for both the P and FM this sitting.
Since I am still waiting for the results of the exams, I will not be applying to jobs for at least another month or so. Therefore, I have nothing to do right now, so maybe I thought I could try to make this time productive and learn some of the computer software that actuaries use.
How important are Excel, Access, and Powerpoint (at least for entry level), and what specific things for each program should I know? Also, what other programs do actuaries use?
I'd even go as far as asking someone to give me some work to do. I'm bored.
