They also gave their advice for you as you explore the actuarial career. We feature actuaries from a wide variety of actuarial career paths to help give you a better understanding of the actuarial profession.
"There are currently approximately 22,000 members of the Society of Actuaries and 5,000 members of the Casualty Actuarial Society. In comparison with the estimated 1.8 million accountants or even 600,000 doctors, the number of actuaries is fairly small in comparison."
