Default On average, how many times do you get solicited for non-actuarial positions per week?

And of course, what are those positions for typically?

I mean, I go by Starbucks every day and they have a "Help Wanted" sign up, does that count?

Perhaps I'm confused as to what you're asking.

I've gotten the occasional linked-in note from a recruiter suggesting I apply for some really not-appropriate job. Some of those may have been non-actuarial. But the typical one is "experienced life actuary to head department" or "entry-level P&C position". (I'm an experienced FCAS, unqualified for the first, and uninterested in the second, as a competent recruiter could guess from my credentials.)

You might want to reconsider your denominator there.
I mean, when I've told recruiters that I'd actively consider a new role, I maybe hear about 1 of those a week - and those are all actuarial.

Every once in a while I get some quack recruiter asking if I'm an FCAS.
