Actuarial Interview

Actuarial
Boston, MA

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at New York Life in February 2014.

Interview Details – I did a phone interview with Aon Hewitt in February. The questions were pretty standard behavioral ones. The interview lasted about thirty minutes and I was given time to ask questions at the end. I received an email about a week later saying they were not interested. Overall, the interviewer was nice. He told me about his job and the duties of the actuarial interns.

Interview Question – Tell me about a time where you to break down a difficult concept and explain it to someone who did not understand.   Answer Question
