Actuarial Intern

June - August 2017 • Wellesley, MA

What I liked

It was a great experience overall - SLF had a wonderful actuarial community and held great events for the actuarial interns. While my role was not specifically actuarial-related (Capital Management department), I learned about many core concepts and how to use common analytical software, as well as I was able to network and meet senior leaders in the company. SLF was also in an ideal location that allowed me to commute from home, but they also provided summer housing for those who lived far away. This opportunity led into a full time job.

What I wish was different

Nothing

Advice

Specifically for actuarial students - take all of the networking opportunities that you can, and take advantage of free time (specifically the summer prior to internships) to prepare and sit for actuarial exams. These will be greatly beneficial and provide numerous opportunities as students look for internships and full-time jobs.
