Firstly: I am -not- one year removed from graduation - graduating in May, 2008, and secondly: I am taking Exam P in February, and FM this year (don't know if Spring or Fall yet).


Do I have a chance of landing an internship? Most companies say they -prefer- candidates one year removed with at least one exam.

I had my first actuarial internship two years removed from graduation and 0 exams attempted. I phone interviewed in November, though, and I found out in December or January that I got it. However, I've seen postings on various company sights for actuarial interns, so I think you still have time, but you should be applying (which I hope you already have).

Are you just checking out sites of consulting companies/insurance companies? I'm running through this: http://www.beanactuary.org/find/atp.cfm and also looking through job posting sites.

Yes, looking at company sites and also www.linkedin.com, to which I was directed last week. Here's a quick list of some mainly P&C/Consulting companies you may or may not have looked at:

Tillinghast (Towers Perrin)
Travelers Insurance
Milliman
Liberty Mutual (Definitely saw intern opportunity last time I checked it)
Zurich (Definitely saw intern opportunity last time I checked it)
The Hartford
Allstate
CNA
PWC
E&Y
Geico

If you're willing to travel, there are definitely opportunities out there.
