The Chicago Actuarial Association would like to thank the the Society of Actuaries for the opportunity to host the November Candidate Connect event. Featuring multiple keynote speakers, including John Adduci and Tom Edwalds of the CAA, the day’s events at the O’Hare Westin brought together 130 actuarial students and career changers. Speakers offered their perspectives on the challenges and rewards of the profession, its future and their personal journeys to becoming actuaries.
The format of the event was open and interactive, offering a forum to ask speakers questions and concluding with a two-hour long networking reception that gave candidates a chance to meet with local employers and speak with presenters.
The event’s atmosphere was energetic and welcoming, showcasing the candidates’ diverse backgrounds, talents and interests which will help shape the profession’s future..
