What is the most important advice for students interested in pursuing a property & casualty actuarial career? Which exams and classes are most important to take during college? How do I decide between P&C, Life, and Health? What is the difference between working for a consulting firm vs. an insurance company?

As you are considering your future career as an actuary, it is likely that you are finding yourself asking similar questions that can be best answered by speaking with practicing actuaries, and getting a number of different perspectives. Through free webinars and in-person networking events, CAS Student Central is offering members many opportunities to interact and learn from property & casualty actuaries in the upcoming 2014-2015 school year.


CAS Student Central will host two webinars this year tailored towards the needs of Student Central members. The first webinar, Career Paths in the Property & Casualty Actuarial Profession, will be held on September 19th from 1:00pm – 2:00pm ET. The webinar will feature a panel of CAS members (including myself), from a variety of backgrounds and practice areas. Following a brief set of introductory remarks, the floor will be open for you to ask anything that you want to know about pursuing a property & casualty actuarial career. Don’t wait – REGISTER NOW!

Student Programs

There will be several opportunities to attend a student program at an upcoming CAS meeting and seminar this year. CAS Student Central members are invited to participate in one-day student programs that will be held in different locations throughout the US. Β By attending a student program, you will have the opportunity to network with practicing actuaries, and participate in both regular seminar sessions and student-specific sessions. At the beginning of the program, you will be paired with a CAS member who will answer questions, provide guidance, and help navigate the seminar while networking and attending sessions together.
