When people talk about work-life balance, actuaries talk about work-life-exam balance. Finding that optimal balance in life, however, is not easy; it involves a continuous process of learning, experimenting, and trial-and-error. I want to share with you three apps that I found useful in this process of finding balance.
Student representatives from 25 Centers of Actuarial Excellence (CAE) universities in the U.S., Canada, and Hong Kong gathered downtown Chicago on Aug. 14–15 to attend the Society of Actuaries (SOA) 2014 CAE Student Summit. I was fortunate enough to be selected as one of the two representatives from Temple University to attend this wonderful annual event. Although only two days, it was an extremely valuable experience. I’d like to share a few things I learned, and some inspirations I received from this conference.
