    Actuarial Analyst Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at Towers Watson in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied through the University Career website and got an on campus interview. It lasted 30 minutes and I was interviewed by one of the actuaries. The interview itself was not particularly difficult as he basically went through my resume and asked me questions about my experiences. They notified me in about 2 weeks that I was invited back for an on-site interview. It started with a lunch interview with a couple of the analysts and was rather informal. I then had some 1 on 1 interviews with some more senior actuaries and those were similar to the on campus one. It really depends on the person how the interview goes. My feel is they want to see if you fit in and if you're competent.

    Interview Details

    Made first contact through a career fair. Was invited to attend an info-session later that evening. At the info session I asked if I could be squeezed in for an interview. My soon-to-be interviewer took a look at my resume (seemed to be checking for exams passed) and then said I could come in tomorrow morning for an interview. Interview was half-an-hour, as there were other interviews scheduled after mine. The interviewer was very friendly and most of the interview had to do with me walking her through my resume.

    Interview Details

    I applied through LinkedIn, got response in a week. Was interviewed following week over the phone. It lasted for an hour. It was basic technical questions and some project management questions to verify your genuineness of your experience. Got response in 3 days and was scheduled for the interview a week later. The interview was held onsite. There were 3 rounds of interviews. One was with the Director of IT, the other with PM and the last one with Architect/TL. The architect asked question specific to the project. This was followed by some technical discussion about Sitecore architecture. This was then followed by code to debug and improve. The code has some compilation issues, it was simple.

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Towers Watson.

    Interview Details

    all about behavior questions. Why do you want to be an actuary? Tell me about your self and go through your resumes asking for examples and projects details. But you have to prepare it well. I am a little bit nervous and read my notes a lot. Avoid doing such and speak it yourself.
