I am currently an Actuarial Analyst at Allstate Insurance Company in Northbrook IL. I graduated from North Central College in Naperville IL in April 2006 with a B.S. degree in Finance and Actuarial Science. I use math directly in my job everyday ranging from simply algebra to complex calculus and statistics. These skills are helpful for me in understanding how different methodologies we use work. Actuaries take a series of exams in order to be credentialed. I have taken the first three actuarial exams with topics such as statistics, calculus and life contingencies. Outside of exams I work in Microsoft excel where I use math the most. Spreadsheets that I create require basic math skills to develop and interpret.
