Question Resume: Teacher Turned Actuary


I obtained a bachelor's in math about 5 yrs ago and have been co-teaching/subbing/tutoring ever since. I am switching careers to be an actuary and just passed exam P . I'm going to start applying to actuarial analyst positions while studying for FM, but I have no idea where to start or how to build a resume with no actuarial experience. Any advice?

Thank you!

Aside from the resume, you'll need an answer to the question "why no full-time teaching gig in 5 years?"
