Actuary Job Challenges and Solutions

Job Challenges and Solutions

Having been highly interested in the field of mathematics, for my future pathway, I have chosen the job of an Actuary. Actuarial work requires a person to calculate and manage the risk value of uncertain events like deaths, accidents and property loss. The working lifestyle of an actuary comes with several benefits and disadvantages. Although, an actuary has a lot of benefits like travelling opportunities but also has a lot of negative aspects as well. An actuary has to meet a very high examination requirement for advancement in the job, requires a large amount of effort to secure a job in this field and the job lifestyle of an actuary witnesses a lot of stress (Be an Actuary).

Firstly, an actuary has to do a lot of hard work in their day to day lifestyle to get promoted in their job level. Even after getting an actuarial job in any company, the employee has to train very hard to successfully pass the actuarial set of examination, in order to get a job promotion. Besides working for full-time, it is quite tough to study for examination in order to advance in the actuary field. For advancing in an actuary position, one has to write several sets of exams. These exams judge the mathematical skills, a person learns over the span of five years of the undergraduate degree. However, the educational requirements are very high and rigid, as the candidate must attain a very high-grade point average in order to be considered for a promotion in the job level with good financial stability (E-how). The minimum grade point considered is of 3.2. As set up by the Society of Actuaries and Causality Actuarial Society, in order to get the first certification, it requires a successful completion of seven exams by an actuary. Similarly, an actuary needs to pass two additional exams to reach the next level. This shows the amount of difficulty and big challenge actuaries face for getting a promotion in the job level. However, in order to overcome this difficulty of getting promoted through exams, one needs to accept the difficulty as a challenge in a positive way and should stay confident. The actuaries should see the positive side of the challenge instead of thinking about the hardship it creates, as it will increase the complications and make the life worse. Rather than worrying about the toughness of the exam level, they should focus on managing their time wisely between job routine and studies. Also, in order to help an employee to overcome any such education-related problem, many companies provide support for the actuaries. Usually, companies at job place, even grant their employees with some time to study and depending upon the potential one has, tends to provide funds for their education, in terms of scholarships. Thus, in order to overcome the challenge of high-examination requirements, one needs to change their life by looking at the challenge in a positive way and manage their time wisely. These are some of the methods that can help to easily improve the lifestyle of an actuary (Info Barrel).

Secondly, a bigger challenge an actuary has to face is the difficulty of securing a job in the actuarial field because of the increasing competition. Although there is a huge demand of new actuaries in this profession, but most companies look for actuarial professionals, who are specialised in their work. Nowadays, there is a huge competition in the field of an actuary and it is mainly due to the increasing job applicants and the shortage of job positions with good salary packages. Thus, the employers tend to keep only those people who are not only professionals in their work but have a good personality, rather than having only good grades. This is because the actuaries have to discuss the consequences of every aspect with their colleagues and needs to do a lot of customer interaction. Hence, it has become difficult to stay in the field of an actuary. It is a very big challenge that actuaries have to face in their everyday life in order to save their job over the other competitors. In order to overcome this challenge, a person in the field of actuary should stay focused on their work. Actuaries can make this change possible by doing meditation, which results in better focusing on the work. If they keep these challenges aside and work hard over fulfilling their job goals, actuarial professionals can easily ensure good work ethics and satisfaction of their customers. Thus, easily becoming an asset to their company. Also, in order to maintain a fixed position, an actuary should show some higher-involvement in their work and regular interactions with employees and create a healthy work environment. In this way, a person in the field of an actuary, can reduce the job problems of others and for themselves. Thus, securing their jobs and giving them a sense of satisfaction. (Coaching Actuaries)

Lastly, another major challenge faced by actuaries in their daily life is a high rate of stress. Since an Actuary’s work is to calculate risk value, their work is highly pressurised. Throughout their working time, they have to go through serious and intense calculations, where a small mistake can lead to big faults in the future investment plan for any person. It is clearly observed that “Any job with a description that includes the word "risk" likely involves some level of stress. This is especially true for actuaries because they consider the risks of financial decisions for employers and others” (Chron). Since it is very hard to work with the spreadsheets, risk values and financial investment plans, it causes a person to undergo stress, which further leads to depression. The stage of depression further affects the personal life of an individual as well. For an actuary, the stress is really dangerous as it can cause problems in the workplace resulting in some wrong calculation, afterwards ruining the life plans of those who witness uncertainties in their life and seek the help from the insurance companies. Thus, it is very necessary for an actuary to overcome stress. In order to find a solution for job stress, one should take out some time from their job and go out for vacations. In this way, one can get exposed to the healthy environment and get relaxed. In the time of stress, one must also try to get enough sleep to freshen up their brains and should eat a healthy diet and should avoid alcohol. This is because alcohol might give some temporary satisfaction but is very harmful in the long run. Also, in order to get stress relief, one should do a lot of physical activities and get their body to move. These are some of the ways that can help an Actuary to easily escape from stress problems in their life (Help Guide).
