    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Willis Re.

    Interview

    The process was standard. A cover letter and couple of tests, not too hard to pass. I was invided to the first interview round in December 2014. I was interviews by a manager that was really friendly. She asked me basic questions about myseld and why actuarial, my motivations and a couple of competency questions. Nothing exciting or different.

    Interview Questions

    • She also asked about actuarial and what I knew about the industry and the job in particular but never gave me a chance to say much about Reinsurance that I really studied since I thought would be a major point. She asked me what I knew about the news, but we ended up talked about the financial crisis in Cyprus that happened in March 2013. The kind of person thought that I think they were looking for is one that does not feel confident about themselves and is more prepare to fail rather than succeed. I am saying that because she asked me how long does it take to be qualified? And I gave the industry averages of 3-6 years. She said that she was qualified in 7 years and that it is more important to have the exposure to the clients rather than concentrate to the exams. Also, I had a confident attitide in terms of passing the actuarial exams and that I am not affraid of failing but I would rather not (btw she asked about a failure and how you dealt with it). I don't think that after all that she liked me, but I liked her and it was a very good experience for me.   Answer Question
