Tuesday was my first day where I put reasonable effort into finding an actuarial job and I went through the short list of Philly firms I really wanted to work for. One of them, Towers Watson had a section for recent graduates and there I found two very bad pictures of people that had graduated with me from Temple University. The shots were poorly posed and the flash had flattened all detail. This is sometimes referred to as “DMV” lighting and it makes everyone look bad. I found a position to apply for and a part of me wanted to include “I will improve the pictures on your web page” as part of my cover letter.
