Contingencies Magazine, March 2014
Once again, actuary was named No. 1 best job in America. Some in the profession are leveraging that accolade to move into new and exciting roles.

So what does that mean? Surging interest among those looking to enter the profession, increased exposure to industries previously ignorant of the skills that actuaries bring to the table, and, it is to be hoped, expanding opportunities in those industries in which actuaries haven’t traditionally been employed.
