*apology for my mistake on the title above. cant make change at this point.
There might be severals reasons behind,
mostly it's because actuaries make decent salaries and with its expertise
it is less likely to get fired than non-credentialed professions..
I have a question tho.
If you are the only one in 4-person family whos making money
would you be well-off if you are , lets say , fcas/fsa level actuary and have
5~10 years of experience. what do you expect to make?
I am trying to figure out the numbers before making up my mind
but some say they make less than 100k and some say you can make more
than 300k with experience and the designation. I am hoping for 200k~ probably before mid 30s.

200k for mid 30s is optimistic IMO, if you are smart and work hard it's possible. Under 100k would be somewhat unlikely with bonus if you're credentialed in mid 30s.

The person who started the thread can change the title. Use thread tools to move the thread to any other forum in the Actuarial Outpost, then move it back. Either time you move it, you have the option to change the title. Awkward, I know, but it does the job.

Spacing is your friend. But not on an entry-level resume, that is a game of space-murdering, and it can get just as ugly as having no space.
