Wooo, I got a job!


It's been nine months since I passed my first exam and I feel very fortunate (and a bit lucky) to be employed. Can't wait to start!

I'm starting to feel like the actuarial profession is one big drinking game. Took the exam? Drink! Passed the exam? Drink! Failed the exam? Drink! Got a phone interview? Drink! Got the in-person interview? Drink! Etc.
