    Life insurance is the free enterprise method of preserving people's dignity.

    Compared to actuarial work in pensions or health insurance, life insurance permits greater creativity, has a longer-term focus, tends to be stable.

    It has a long-term perspective, which makes it more stable, makes actuarial analysis more needed.

    Just about everybody needs life insurance.

    The government doesn't control the rates, so there's more creativity allowed.

    Government, consumer, and attorney/provider conflicts haven't messed it up like pensions, P&C, & health.

    Why Life Insurance? Why Health? Why P&C? Why Pension? I have no idea

    No clue how to answer those questions. The honest-to-peaches truth is that I don't really care at this point which one I get into, the important thing is getting my foot in the door. I like health insurance right now because I managed to get a phone interview for a health position. A week from Friday it will be something else.

    Anyways, what are some good reasons I could mention for wanting to go into any of those particular fields?

    Health insurance is a hot topic. Actuaries can provide real solutions. The field is expected to develop quickly.

    Life insurance is the free enterprise method of preserving people's dignity. It is the best solution for estate tax problems.

    Everybody needs P&C for auto, home
