CAS Supports Third Annual Insurance Careers Month
Arlington, VA – February 1, 2018 – The Casualty Actuarial Society (CAS) is proud to support the third annual Insurance Careers Month (ICM) initiative, a multi-phased collaborative effort designed to raise awareness of insurance as a compelling career choice. The campaign is focused on spreading the message of insurance as the "Career Trifecta" -- stable, rewarding and limitless.
The Insurance Careers Month campaign, which initially launched in February 2016 and then broadened during its first year to the Insurance Careers Movement, aligns well with the CAS's extensive and ongoing university engagement efforts. The CAS boasts a dedicated network of over 300 CAS members worldwide who volunteer throughout the year to bring awareness to university students about the property and casualty insurance career through the CAS University Liaison Program. The CAS also offers a free student membership program, CAS Student Central, housed at CASstudentcentral.org, which exemplifies the organization's deep commitment to fostering the next generation of casualty actuarial professionals. CAS Student Central offers students access to actuarial exam preparation materials, P/C internship listings, scholarship information, and invitations to webinars and networking events.
Throughout Insurance Careers Month 2018, the CAS will promote its Millennial Profile series, first developed as a companion to the debut ICM initiative in 2016. The profiles feature CAS members and candidates offering advice and insights for students considering an insurance career, and will be available on CASstudentcentral.org and its social media platforms. CAS members and candidates interested in being included in the 2018 series can contact CAS Marketing and Communications Coordinator, Maha Chaudhry. The CAS will also be participating in The Pipeline, the Insurance Industry's first Virtual Career Fair for Collegiate Talent organized by Gamma Iota Sigma (GIS), on February 13, 2018.
On an ongoing basis, the CAS promotes the property and casualty career to millennials through a wide range of activities. The CAS has developed a property and casualty resource library to help university professors design courses for students interested in joining the insurance industry as actuaries, a case competition tool-kit to allow universities and employers to introduce students to real-life challenges that are found in the insurance industry, and other resources that cover topics directly affecting the insurance field such as climate change, driverless cars, and cyber risk.
Over 850 insurance organizations have already signed on to support Insurance Careers Month, recognizing the importance of attracting the next generation of industry leaders.
