Actuaries ask “What are the odds?” They use math and statistics to calculate the odds of how likely something is to happen. For example, auto insurance companies use actuaries to calculate how likely it is that you might get into a fender bender while driving. Actuaries may also work in insurance, finance, marketing, manufacturing, and product development. To work in this field, your college major should be in mathematics, statistics, or economics. Next time you think that an act is random, an actuary may tell you different!
