Once primarily found in the insurance industry, actuaries are now found throughout corporate America, helping executives make intelligent and informed financial decisions. In addition to helping insurers mitigate the chances of losses, actuaries help weigh risk in pension funds, stock and bond portfolios, and even hedge funds. Actuaries also work in areas beyond the financial industry, helping to determine and alleviate risks for product launches, production facility expansions and much more.

This Vault guide shows you how to begin an actuarial career--one of the most creative options for a statistician, economist or mathematician--and how to advance your career. The guide gives you an inside look at landing interviews, interview questions, typical days in the life of an actuary and the inside scoop on the top actuarial employers.
