I have been thinking about changing careers into the actuarial field but I had no idea how or where to start and what was the best path to take. After doing some research on my own, I wanted someone in the field to hopefully mentor and guide me to the best path to becoming an actuary. After posting on various actuarial groups, Chloe reached out to me through Linkedin to offer advice and coaching. Her knowledge and guidance were invaluable, have allowed me to construct a schedule and a plan on what I should be doing to achieve my goals. She gave me realistic expectations on how long an average person takes to pass exams and what necessary skills are needed and used on an everyday basis such as Excel and VBA. She also gave me recommendations on what type of internships I should be targeting to gain more experience and even various resources to help me study and pass those grueling exams. I now have a more realistic idea of what it takes to become an actuary and what steps I need to pass to successfully achieve my goal. I’m glad I was able to get in touch with Chloe and I know I can always turn to her for any additional help when needed. I would recommend Chloe to anyone who is just starting off their career in the actuarial field to gain insight into information and resources to help prepare you for your career.
