Actuarial Intern Interview

Actuarial Intern
Bloomfield, CT

I applied online and the process took 5+ weeks - interviewed at MetLife in January 2014.

Interview Details – I applied online and within a week I had a call for an on-site interview in Bloomfield, CT. The interview that day was about three hours, three interviews and lunch afterward. Everyone in the office was really friendly; it was a relaxed environment. Overall, none of the questions asked unexpected or hard, but just to get a better idea of who you are. The whole process took about a month.

Interview Question – What made you want to go into the actuarial science field?   Answer Question

Actuarial Intern Interview

Actuarial Intern

I applied online and the process took 3 months - interviewed at MetLife in December 2012.

Interview Details – I sent an application through their online application system, and I got an email two months later inviting me for an interview. There were three interviews in one afternoon, all one on one. The interview questions were standard for an actuarial interview: what do you know about the profession, what do you know about Excel, why do you want to be an actuary. There were also personal questions about my hobbies. About three weeks later, I received a letter saying that they weren't considering me.

Interview Question – They asked a lot about my experiences with Excel and they wanted me to point to specific projects.   Answer Question
