Top tips for an Actuarial career

Expert advice provided by Director, Irene Yang 

Dedication to career progression

Perseverance is essential in a successful career as an actuary. Depending on the specialist area you would like to explore, it's important to understand what qualifications you need to start your actuary journey, as well as the right companies that can progress your career forward (i.e. SOA, CAS). The average time for an actuary professional to be qualified is four years, which typically includes a degree and qualification by a recognised actuary body. 

Understand market trends and how they might affect you

The insurance market is susceptible to change, with different trends or regulations affecting the sector every year. Not only does this affect businesses, but also impact job roles in Actuarial. By keeping a proactive eye on the market, you can understand the impact market change might have on your practices, underwriting decision, reporting and risk, allowing you to react accordingly and flexibly. 

Actuarial interview advice

During interviews for actuarial positions, it is common for Hiring Managers to use situational questions, so they can gain an understanding of how you overcome challenges, stakeholder management skills or communication skills. Make sure you prepare examples of when you have successfully managed conflict or overcame difficult stakeholders using the ‘STAR’ technique. Hiring Managers want to know you can read situations well, adjust behaviour accordingly and effectively come to a solution.
