2/9/09: Actuaries are actually cool!

February 9, 2009 at 12:50 pm 3 comments

Hey Everyone,

I heard you have been studying probability in class. As we all know, math is at the foundation of almost every technology career. In particular, understanding the concepts of probability will not only help you play poker, it could land you a high paying job as an actuary. What is an actuary? Watch this video and share your thoughts with us by replying to this blog post.

Thanks, and remember to take the blackboard assessment for this post at: https://blackboard.ilstu.edu/webct/entryPageIns.dowebct

Best!

    This video was extremely irritating, please don’t post anything like this ever again. It gave me a headache- the awkward camera view and constantly changing backgrounds were enough without the horrible guitar solos.

    Emily,
    Thank you for your honest feedback, that actually really helps us pick better posts. Yeah, I thought the video was a little highschoolish, however my goal was to relate what you were learning in class to a career opportunity. In the end, I figured picking a cheesy video was better than a boring one.

    Please keep sharing your thoughts with us!
    Thanks,
    Greg
