    Cool How's your job hunting going?

    The actuarial job market looks a bit better than last year. So do have guys have problems landing entry level positions?

    I know that the past three years people graduating from my university have had no problems landing entry level jobs.

    You might consider looking for a job before you move if you're moving because you can't find a job. Maybe consider NY, CT, and Chicago?

    How easy is it to move around the country and find jobs within this profession? I am changing careers (I have been working as a CPA for the past 5 years and plan on maintaining my CPA license) to actuary (take the first two exams this fall). My husband is military, which translates into moving every 2-4 years for the next 15 years. Is this a career stopper?

    It's possible. It depends on the type of company. I wouldn't apply to many small insurance/consulting companies. The small companies are looking for longevity - it's not economically feasible for them to spend time and resources training students and having them pick up shop and leave in a short time frame. It will be hard to pick up requisite experience if you're perceived to move quickly.

    Good luck with your job search.

    How many exams have you passed?
    I'm worried that success on P and FM will not be enough to get me a job this summer.

    This probably isn't that helpful but I see a banner at the top for PacifiCare that says, "Immediate Actuarial Opportunities! - Entry Level to Director Level - click here." Give it a try.

    I think it is really hard to get an entry in Canada. It seems situation in Canada is quite different with in US.
