Mentoring

Connecting individual students directly with experienced actuaries is one of the most significant advantages of the Center. We care about students’ development, success, and contribution to the actuarial profession. We match our students with our network professional actuaries and alumni in a one-to-one relationship based on the student’s career interest areas and personality.  The mentors enhance the training experience of the students by serving as role models, coaches and advisors in making career choices and considering how to best apply and advance their acquired skills in the pursuit of their professional and personal goals. Interactions between mentors and mentees will take various forms depending on facilities available to them and other logistical considerations: face-to-face, phone calls, emails, video conferencing, Skyping, etc.

Given the scarcity of professional actuaries in the region that we serve, our mentoring program is to give our students direct access to qualified actuaries wherever we can find ones with the subject-matter expertise.
