Hot Companies Hiring Actuaries

An actuary assesses risk for companies—namely, insurance companies. But here’s one thing that doesn’t seem risky: the job outlook for this particular profession. In fact, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the job outlook for actuaries is expected to grow by 22 percent from 2016 to 2026. And what’s more, they aren’t taking on much financial risk themselves: Actuaries earned a median income of $102,800 per year—or $49.46 per hour—in 2018, according to the bureau. 

And now, we’re reducing some more risk for you: We’ve found 10 hot companies—all highly-rated within the Glassdoor community, and with well-admired CEOS—that are looking to hire actuaries. So, get your resume ready and apply to one (or more) of these hot jobs and companies.
