I'll be training in my stores' pharmacy very soon, and up until now I was sure that was going to be my career. However, I took quite a few career tests where Actuary was 3rd if not 1st on the list. So I'd love to get some advice from our community... From what I understand, you calculate risks for insurance companies, and the need is growing as private companies are also hiring for their own needs. Pay is mostly the same as a pharmacist. Somewhere in the six figures. Education is a Bachelors? What can I expect from choosing this career path? Do you love/hate your job? Any advice for someone like me looking into this career? Anyone working for MetLife? a google search pulled up their application for new actuaries in which you start out assisting current actuaries. How does this process work?
