Do I need Career Guidance to become an Actuary?

More often than not, people find themselves in a state of dilemma before making important decisions in their lives. Being rational individuals, people always want to get what’s best for them. Shouldn’t the same logic be applied while choosing a career, or changing career paths, which is supposedly a big decision one makes in one’s life? Generally, everyone seeks advice from parents and friends before deciding on their career. Actuarial Sciences is a niche career and it requires long time and dedicated years of your life to become an Actuary. The rewards are also great, once you become an Actuary. 

You must definitely go for an actuary career guidance session, if you – 

  • Find it difficult to decide whether actuarial career is right for you; a career guide helps you sort this confusion. 
  • You realise that changing streams and discovering something completely afresh like actuarial sciences requires a lot of planning and discussions; it is always advisable to take guidance on choosing the right career, right from the beginning. 
  • You agree that career routes can be changed at any point of time and an informed choice can be made with the help of a good career guide. 
  • You are a risk-averse student and you do not want your focus to get shifted, and as a result, find yourself not performing up to your potential. 

A career guide not only helps a student decide the career route as an actuary, he/she also guides the student about the path, maps his/her career, helps him/her clear the confusion and distractions coming along the way.

What are the elements of Actuary Career Guidance?

A qualified career counsellor: Our actuary career guidance sessions are conducted by qualified professionals from the industry who have been working in the actuarial field from more than 10 years and have lot of experience in counselling and mentoring.

A secure environment: Our process of career guidance entails creating a safe and secure environment, where the student feels at ease and is able to discuss the issues bothering him/her.
