The Actuarial Profession
The two main actuarial organizations in America are the Society of Actuaries and the Casualty Actuarial Society. The Society of Actuaries says that “Actuaries are highly sought-after professionals who develop and communicate solutions for complex financial issues.” They forgot to mention that Actuary is consistently ranked as one of the best jobs! But don’t take our word for it. Read what actuaries have to say about their profession.
The Exam Process
Actuaries take a series of exams to earn their fellowship designation with the Society of Actuaries (SOA) or the Casualty Actuarial Society (CAS). Read more about the exam processes for the SOA and CAS and how they are going to change in 2018. If you are planning to take an exam soon, visit the SOA website to check when the registration deadline is for your sitting.
