In my BA 2101 “Get Ready to Work” class, one assignment consisted of creating a fake experience portfolio for a job interview. The process was to think about a hypothetical piece of work you could provide to an employer to prove competence in your field. Easy for a photographer, actor, or writer, not so easy for an actuary. I wrote the following:
- Randomly select 10 people from local retirement home
- Guess when they’ll die
- Check-up periodically, select new people as fogeys succumb to icy hand of death
I hope that counts. Should it not, like four would become “based on results, adjust investments in Centrum Silver and coffin manufacturers accordingly.
