That's the exact career path I'm working on. I got my BSEE from Iowa State in 2001 and have spent the past eight years as an engineer. I passed the 1/P last month, and I have just started exploring entry-level actuarial jobs in Iowa.

Hey everyone!

I don't know if there are any current ISU undergrads/alumna visiting AO nowadays, but I just joined. I know a few actuaries that are also going to ISU, but I'm not sure if they come here.

This coming year 11-12 will be my last, and next May I'll start looking for an EL job.

I've passed P and FM so far, but sadly I'll have no time to do an internship prior to graduation, so hopefully P and FM (and maybe even a third one before graduation) will be enough to get me a job somewhere.
