    Business Insight

  • 3. What was it like understanding all about the business and potential roles available?
  • I was able to really increase my understanding of an actuarial job. My knowledge was not as vast coming in and I was able to learn about Insurance, Pension and Investment Actuary. I was also able to attend team meetings and talk to junior teams to learn how they operate as a group and how they balance working with studying.

It is a really intense experience but you just need to be yourself, actively participate in discussions and make sure you manage your time well.
