Get Your Actuarial Dream Job in Less Than a Year.

No Internship Required!

(Even if you have a low GPA, no exams passed yet, or you’ve already graduated from college)

The Truth About Actuarial Internships

If you’re like most aspiring actuaries, you’ve heard over and over again that you have to get an actuarial internship if you want to get a full-time job later.

But those internship opportunities are hard to come by, aren’t they?

Especially if:

Your GPA doesn’t meet that “3.2 or higher” requirement

You graduated from college years ago

You haven’t passed any actuarial exams yet

You only have “drive thru at Jack in the Box” experience to add to your resume

Your technical skills are pretty much non-existent

Are any of those statements true for you?

If you said yes, you might be feeling like it’s going to be nearly impossible to get an internship.

It’s a bit discouraging, right? Especially when you’ve put your whole heart into the actuarial field.

And then, on top of that, there’s this infamous catch-22 in the actuarial field of

“you can’t get experience without a job, can’t get a job without experience”.

How are you supposed to do that if you aren’t even eligible for most internships?

If you’re like most future actuaries, you probably even feel like you’re behind. You wish that you had started earlier or done more, so that you’d be eligible for one of those must-have internships.

But here’s the truth you need to hear..

The “you need an actuarial internship to be successful” myth is one that is commonly believed in the actuarial world.

But, you don’t actually NEED one!

What You Really Need to Get Your Actuarial Dream Job

An internship isn’t necessary!

What you really need are the TECHNICAL SKILLS, ACTUARIAL KNOWLEDGE, and REAL-WORLD, RELEVANT EXPERIENCE that is naturally gained while in an internship.

Those are the qualifications, in addition to actuarial exams passed, that employers expect from you.

If an employer sees that you don’t have those qualifications, that’s when they’ll pass on your application, and move on to the next applicant.

Now here’s some really good news for you..

Those qualifications can all be gained outside of an actuarial internship.

And honestly, learning them outside of an internship allows you to gain a broader, more appealing, range of skills and knowledge too.

And here’s some even more good news: You can pass an actuarial exam or two at the same time as you gain those other qualifications!

That means that you can completely skip the actuarial internship process, and still become an in-demand, highly qualified, actuarial candidate.

Now, there’s a special name for candidates like that; ones that are overall superstars.

They’re Called “Top Actuarial Candidates”

A Top Candidate is someone that has all the qualifications that actuarial employers are looking for:

Excellent technical skills

High-level actuarial knowledge

Real-world, relevant experience

Actuarial exams passed

Great communication skills

And because they have all of these qualifications that employers need and expect…

Getting an actuarial job becomes inevitable.  It’s just a matter of time.

Notice that an actuarial internship isn’t required at all!

It’s True! Getting an Actuarial Job is Inevitable for a Top Candidate

Think about this for a minute…

If you’re a Top Candidate that can

Show employers that you’re a wizard with programs, like Excel

Talk about actuarial projects you’ve completed

Demonstrate your highly relevant prior experiences

Prove your math smarts with some passed exams

Communicate your thoughts and ideas clearly

Then why wouldn’t an actuarial employer hire you?

You have EVERY SINGLE QUALIFICATION they’re looking for (and more). You’ve hit the bulls-eye!

You’ve essentially become the best of the best in terms of actuarial candidates.

And let me ask you this.. Have you ever heard of someone with all of those qualifications that couldn’t get a job?

My guess is no! Because it just doesn’t happen.

Now, here’s the thing…

You, yes YOU, can become a Top Actuarial Candidate!

  • You don’t need a crazy high GPA.
  • You don’t need to still be in college.
  • You don’t need any prior experience.
  • You don’t need to have any exams passed.
  • You don’t need to get an actuarial internship.

That’s because despite not having all of these things right now, you can get all the resources and support you need to overcome any of these barriers (without ever stepping into an actuarial internship).

The BIG Benefits of Becoming a Top Candidate

Stand out in a competitive job market: Employers have lots of candidates to choose from, so they often choose the top candidates because they’re the most qualified ones.

Open up more opportunities for yourself: Top candidates commonly receive multiple offers, and their skills can be used in a variety of different career paths.

Increase your starting salary: Top candidates can expect to start off with a higher salary, and may even have more negotiation power because they are more qualified than most other candidates.

Less studying before you get hired: Top candidates don’t need to pass as many exams to get hired, because they have other qualifications that will make them stand out more.  That means hundreds of hours of your time saved!

Potential for bigger raises: Raises and bonuses are often a percentage of your income.  Higher starting salary means potential for higher raises and bonuses down the road.

You Can Do This Too! Just Like Our Past Members..

“I Got a Job Within 2 Months, When I Had Been Searching For 5 Months Before That”

Dean decided that his teaching career wasn’t what he thought it would be, so he switched into the actuarial career and hasn’t looked back!

“I’m Working as an Actuarial Consultant Now, Making a Bit Over $60K Per Year!”

Emma became a top actuarial candidate in less than a year, and just recently got her first full-time job in pension consulting!

Members Have Recently Been Offered Actuarial Jobs At…

(and more..)

Here’s What Other Successful Members Have Said…

College Should Teach This (But it Doesn’t)

No matter whether or not you’re in college right now or you’ve already graduated, you know the crazy high fees that need to be paid every semester, just to remain a student and get your degree.

By the end of a 4 year degree, you’ve probably paid $50,000 or more.

And what can you say by the end of it all?

You can say you’re really good at math.

That’s great! Because math wizards like you are highly employable.

But the problem is that actuarial employers expect more. They won’t just hire someone because they’re good at math.

They want someone with the other skills and qualifications that are needed for actuarial work, specifically.

And that’s where the typical college degree lacks…

College doesn’t teach you beyond the math.

So that’s the big reason behind why the Actuary Accelerator Community exists for you today.

It exists to teach you everything else you need to know so that you can get your actuarial dream job!

And although the contents of the AAC are more valuable for your career than a $50,000+ college degree, you’ll get access to it for way less.

That’s because I know that what you learn here could be the difference between

a. You getting your actuarial dream job, or

b. You working in a career with less opportunity for growth, less financial stability, and way more stress up until the day you retire.

So, you in?

Get Your Actuarial Dream Job!

Enjoy the high salary and a career you love.

Who’s This For?

The Actuary Accelerator Community was designed for the following 3 types of people:

Type 1: The Brand New Aspiring Actuary

You want to be an actuary but you’re overwhelmed with all the information and confused on where to start.  You might be concerned about whether or not you can really be successful in this career.

It’s common for aspiring actuaries to feel hesitant to fully commit to the career when there is so much uncertainty about their future.  They’ve heard that the exams are really difficult, failing is common, and that many people have wasted tons of time studying for exams and still weren’t able to find a job.

While these things may be true, that doesn’t have to be the case for you!

The people that share those stories typically have focused all their time on studying for exams. But members of the Actuary Accelerator Community learn that becoming a TOP candidate doesn’t mean passing tons of exams.

Instead, a TOP candidate will be well-rounded.  They’ll have a few exams passed, but they’ll also develop other skills, experience and knowledge that make them more valuable to actuarial employers.  You learn all that in the Actuary Accelerator Community, including how to do it all!

So, if the fear of not getting a job has been hindering you from taking a step forward in this career, you can now have confidence that you will be able to succeed if you’re willing to become a TOP candidate.

Type 2: The Exhausted Aspiring Actuary

You’ve set your mind on becoming an actuary and you have already taken actions towards becoming qualified.  But, you may be feeling exhausted from studying so much, frustrated with the lack of time you have, and may even feel yourself starting to lose motivation.

I remember my days being in your exact shoes.  It’s definitely no fun.

For so many aspiring actuaries, these issues cause their career progress to be super slow, or even worse, completely delayed and pushed further and further into the future.

But when you’ve worked so hard for this already, and put so much time, energy and money into it, you want to start “reaping the rewards” as soon as possible.

You want to get that actuarial dream job that you love.  You want to start solving real-world problems and making an impact.  You want that financial stability and job security that the actuarial career is known for.

So that’s why the Actuary Accelerator Community will give you specific, actionable steps to take so that you get your actuarial job in the least amount of time possible.

You’ll be able to schedule your day so that you do small chunks at a time, knowing that every time you make progress, you’re getting closer to starting your actuarial career and all that is has to offer.

Plus, other members will give you an endless amount of support, motivation, and inspiration.

Ever heard the saying, “you are the average of the 5 people you spend the most time with”?  When you spend time in the members-only chat group, the momentum of other members will instantly motivate you to stay consistent and do your best everyday.

Type 3: The Job Searching Aspiring Actuary

You’ve started applying for actuarial jobs but haven’t had much success so far.  You may be starting to feel like giving up, or completely discouraged and wondering if you’ll ever be able to find a job.

Struggling to find that actuarial job that you’ve worked so hard for can create a huge mental block and completely kill your motivation to keep going.

We’ve found that there are typically two reasons that an aspiring actuary has difficulty getting a job, and there are resources to help with both in the Actuary Accelerator Community.

Reason # 1: The qualifications that the candidate brings to the table aren’t enough to stand out to employers among all the other candidates applying for the position.

Essentially, this means that the candidate isn’t a TOP actuarial candidate right now.  The Actuary Accelerator Community teaches you what to do to become more in-demand.  You will be able to skip over any steps that you’ve already taken.

Reason # 2: The candidate has a lot of great qualifications, but hasn’t clearly communicated those to employers, so that they fully understand the value that the candidate could bring to their company.

This means that the candidate’s resume, LinkedIn profile, and interviewing strategy need to be revised, edited, and possibly rearranged so that employers can better understand the skill set that the candidate offers and how it would be beneficial.

The Actuary Accelerator Community offers many resources to help you with all of this!

So, the actuarial career is definitely still possible for you. You can still get that actuarial job you love! You’ll just have to take a few more steps, that’s all.

The Excel Course

Microsoft Excel is THE MOST IMPORTANT technical skill that a TOP actuarial candidate needs to know.

As a member, you’ll get access to our exclusive Excel Master Course, which teaches Excel from beginner to advanced level, and even applies everything to an actuarial context.

But just taking a course isn’t enough to impress employers!

You need to do lots of projects too, so that you can solidify your skills and talk about the projects you’ve done during interviews.

So, you’ll also get 6 actuarial Excel projects for you to practice with.

This course also teaches VBA, a programming language that can be used to automate tasks in Excel. It’s our #1 recommended programming language to learn for aspiring actuaries!

The practice projects will help you solidify your VBA skills too, so that you can add both Excel and VBA to your resume.

You can even get our Excel Ninja Certificate by completing one of the Excel Ninja Challenges that are offered a few times per year.

Have Questions?

Well, we’ve got answers! Below are some of the most commonly asked questions about the Actuary Accelerator Community.

Is there support available if I get stuck or have questions?

Absolutely! This is a community and your actuarial support system!

If you run into problems or have questions, you’ll always be able to contact us via email, or you can ask in the members-only WhatsApp group. 

Plus, Brea hosts regular Q&A sessions for members, where you can ask any questions.  And Nadine hosts a monthly onboarding session where you can ask questions and learn all about every single resource you get access to as a member.

Can this help me get an actuarial internship?

You already know that an actuarial internship isn’t required in order to get an actuarial job, but many of our members still get one!

It’s a great way to solidify your skills even more.

If getting an internship is your goal, then Phase 2, 3 of the AAC plan will be particularly beneficial for you, as that’s where you’ll learn the skills and qualifications that internship employers are typically looking for.

In Phase 5, you’ll also learn how to market yourself to those employers, so that you have the best chance of getting an actuarial internship.

Since internships are so competitive, going through all three of those phases will help you stand out amongst the all the other applicants!

When is the best time to join?

If you..

a. Are currently trying to decide if the actuarial career is right for you, or
b. Have already started taking steps toward becoming an actuary but haven’t got a job yet

then now is the best time to join.

No matter which phase of your actuarial journey you’re in, there are other members inside waiting for you!

It’s OK to join even if..

    • You’re not 100% sure if the actuarial career path is a good fit for you
    • You haven’t had an internship yet
    • You haven’t passed any exams yet
    • You still need to learn technical skills
    • You’re not sure what you should do to be successful

We will help you with all of that in the AAC!

Do I need to pass some actuarial exams before I join the AAC?

No, you don’t need to!

Many other community members are in the very early stages of their actuarial journey, and haven’t yet started to study for their exams either.

They’ll be happy to have you come along with them on this journey!

The AAC has tons of resources to help you pass your first 2 exams (when the time is right), including

  • Study material (for Exam P/1 only right now; Exam FM/2 coming soon)
  • A study strategy plan
  • A Q&A forum to get your questions answered
  • Study groups!
Is this too advanced for me right now? Am I getting myself in too deep?

It can be scary to finally take the plunge and jump into a program that is specifically designed to help you get an actuarial job.

Do you know why it’s scary?

It’s probably because joining the AAC means that you’re deciding to commit. You’re deciding to believe in yourself, and go for your dreams, even though others around you may tell you it’s too hard, or that you can’t do it.

Well, not only are you going to be surrounded by a motivating group of other members that have the same positive mindset about the actuarial career as you, but you’ll also have a step-by-step plan to help you achieve this goal as quickly as possible. With that, you’ll be able to prove all the nay-sayers wrong!

Plus, there is no contract or long-term commitment and you can cancel any time with a few clicks. That way, you have complete control over how long you remain a member.

What makes other members so successful? What % of people actually get jobs?

Our most successful members have one thing in common: They’ve done the work!

They were willing to spend the necessary time on this goal. They were willing to invest in themselves and their future. They were willing to keep going even when things got tough.

And most importantly, they actually started! (Which, by the way, is something that most people interested in the actuarial field will never do.)

All of that above is what sets our most successful members apart from the average aspiring actuary.

Remember, if you become a top actuarial candidate, it’s inevitable that you’ll be able to get an actuarial job, because you’ll be so well qualified that most employers won’t be willing to turn you away.

Why would they? You have all the skills they’re looking for (and more, usually).

And get this: No one has ever told us that they’ve done all the steps in the AAC and weren’t able to get a job. And no one has ever claimed our 18-Month Success Guarantee. What’s that say about success rate?!

Should I join if I am studying for an exam (and already have study materials)?

The study materials that you already have are compatible with the Exclusive AAC Actuarial Exam Study Strategy you’ll learn in the AAC.

You’ll also get access to our Exam P/1 Video Study Materials and practice questions, that you can use as a primary or secondary study resource. (Exam FM/2 materials coming soon.)

On another note, most other actuarial study materials that are available outside of the AAC leave you on your own to prepare for the exam. In the AAC, you’ll get additional support like:

    • A Whatsapp study group of other members taking the same exam as you (see Bonus # 1)
    • A Q&A forum, where you can get all your questions answered within 24 hours.
    • Access to our Exclusive AAC Actuarial Exam Study Strategy Course that helps you save time and teaches you the study strategy that 100s of exam candidates have used to successfully prepare for their exam.
    • Exam P Video Study Material, plus tons of practice questions to help you fully prepare for your exam

When you join, you can finish studying for your exam using the resources above, and afterwards you can start following the recommended steps in the AAC.

Are there any exceptions that this won’t work for?

We’ve said multiple times that “if you become a top actuarial candidate, it’s inevitable that you’ll get an actuarial job.. It’s just a matter of time”.

We 100% believe that, and have never come across a case where that wasn’t true.

However, there may be some scenarios where getting an actuarial job may not be as straight-forward, even if you are a top candidate. Here they are:

    • You are only interested in working as an actuary in a country that you are not a citizen of or are not able to work in without sponsorship.
    • You have a criminal record.
    • You are not willing to improve and practice your interviewing skills (if interviewing makes you extremely nervous).

If you meet any of the above conditions, then it doesn’t mean that getting an actuarial job is impossible. There may just be some extra hurdles that you have to overcome.

As long as just 1 employer gives you the chance to prove yourself, that’s all you need!

How long is this going to take? (total months, hours per day/week)

The AAC is designed with a go-at-your-own-pace structure. That means that the more time you’re able to dedicate to your actuarial goals, the quicker you’ll get results.

However, many of our members are in school, or working full-time, so they can only dedicate a small amount of time to their goals each day. Some days they can’t work on their goals at all.

That’s OK!

The end goal (aka to get an actuarial job) is the same for everyone; how quickly you get there is irrelevant.

Employers don’t take into consideration how quickly you became qualified for the job.

And, as you probably already know, becoming an actuary isn’t a quick process, but rest assured that the approach you’ll learn in the AAC is the quickest and most efficient way to get an actuarial job.

Note: As part of the strategy for becoming a top actuarial candidate, we do recommend that you take on some paid projects or a corporate position. That can help you earn the income you may need for your personal living expenses while you pursue this goal.

What expenses should I prepare for in addition to the AAC investment?

The Actuarial Accelerator Plan is designed to have you making money in a related field and getting relevant experience within your first 90 days (usually sooner).

That provides a good income for you, while you work on the other steps required to become a top actuarial candidate.

As a member, almost everything is included so there aren’t many extra costs to take into consideration.

We do recommend that members pass Exam P, FM, and sometimes IFM too.

Current fees to take those exams are $250, $250, and $350 ($300 for students) respectively, per attempt.

At this time, Exam FM and IFM study materials are not included, so you may need to be invest in those at a later date.

Are there any prerequisites for this?

The AAC is designed to help aspiring actuaries at any level, to become top actuarial candidates!

You’ll get all the support you need inside, so no prerequisits are required.

Note that actuarial employers will require that you have a bachelors degree (any major is OK) before you start working full-time.  You can complete the AAC phases while you are still a student.

Is this designed for undergrads, recent grads or career changers?

You can become a top actuarial candidate and get an actuarial job even if:

    • You’re currently in school pursuing your bachelors degree
    • You’re currently pursuing a masters degree
    • You’ve recently graduated from college
    • You’ve decided that you want to change careers and become an actuary.

The AAC has helped members in all 4 of the above situations.

And here’s some good news for you:

  • It doesn’t matter what your GPA is (or was)
  • It doesn’t matter was your major is (or was)
  • It doesn’t matter if you have a masters degree or not

In terms of schooling, actuarial employers in the US and Canada want to see that you have (or are in the process of getting) a bachelor’s degree. A master’s degree isn’t necessary!

What is the guarantee/refund policy?

New members have 18 full months to put the Actuary Accelerator Community resources to the test and get their first full-time actuarial job.

That means that if you’re a member of the Actuary Accelerator Community for 18 consecutive months and don’t end up getting an actuarial job within that timeframe, then we’ll issue a FULL REFUND of all payments you’ve made toward the program. We believe in this program THAT MUCH!

All you have to do is email proof to Nadine, our AAC manager (aac@etchedactuarial.com), that you’ve completed the modules in the program, and that you’ve applied to at least 50 actuarial positions in the prior 90 days to claiming this guarantee.*

Why do we ask that you show us your work?

Because members that don’t complete all the modules will be missing important qualifications that may prevent them from getting a job.  You’ve got to put in the work!

*See terms and conditions for full details.

If you have a question that isn’t answered here, you can email us at support@etchedactuarial.com and we will get back to you within 24 hours.

Are You Going to Invest in Your Future?

Now you have to make one of two choices… Either:

a. Take the longer, less definitive approach to getting an actuarial job, hoping that you’ll get it right on your own

b. Invest in your future as an actuary and have the confidence that you will succeed

Of course, neither option is right or wrong.  It’s all about how you want to approach this goal of getting an actuarial job.

For most future actuaries that are really serious about this and want to achieve their goal as soon as possible, the choice is obvious.. get all the help you can!

But for others, that are just dabbling in the field and not set on it yet, the choice can be a bit more difficult.

So no matter where you stand on that spectrum, you still have to make the choice.

Because every day that goes by, where you continue to contemplate whether you’re going to go for it or not, is another day where you’re not working towards your future!

So, are you going to go all in? Or are you going to keep waiting?
