Property and Casualty Actuarial Presentation at University of Pennsylvania

CAS University Liaison, Erin Davidson, ACAS, visited the University of Pennsylvania earlier this semester to speak to students about the property and casualty actuarial career field. About 20 students attended the presentation and got firsthand advice about the path to becoming an actuary as well as insight into how the property casualty career field differs from other alternatives.

Erin enjoyed talking with the students and stated, “Visiting my alma mater to talk about the CAS and the P&C industry was a very beneficial (and fun) experience for everyone involved. Many of the students had never even considered going into P&C, so it was enlightening for them to hear about the CAS and what a typical P&C actuary does on a day to day basis.”

The visit was coordinated with Celeste Bremen, President of the Penn Actuarial Society. Celeste said, "It was great to have someone from the CAS visit Penn.  Our members really enjoyed having the chance to learn more about the P&C industry, to speak with someone who is currently in the industry, and to hear why it's an area they should consider as they continue their actuarial studies.  As someone who is going into the P&C industry post-graduation I really appreciated having the chance to hear about Erin's experiences and what to expect as I start my actuarial career."
