Every year, Bruin Actuarial Society officers and other qualified seniors serve as mentors for students interested in the actuarial career. Your mentor will serve as a resource for you to learn more about the steps you should be taking as a UCLA student to pursue an actuarial career, whether you have questions about studying for exams, recruiting for internships, or taking UCLA courses.
The mentorship program is open to students of all years and majors and is not restricted to paid members. Although our annual Mentorship Mixer on Friday, October 23rd has already passed, students are welcome to sign up for the mentorship program at any time throughout the year.
Bruin Actuarial Society serves as the undergraduate student organization associated with the Actuarial Program at UCLA. Led by our board of officers, comprised of undergraduate students, we host events throughout the school year to develop our members academically, socially and professionally. We also maintain the Actuarial Program's connections with insurance and actuarial consulting firms and keep our members updated on internship and career opportunities.
BAS hosts the Actuarial Program's largest events of each year, including our Annual Career Fair in the fall, Actuarial Case Competition in the winter, and Spring Banquet. Our Career Fair is one of the largest in the nation, with over twenty firms attending annually. In addition, we host firm representatives for information sessions, resume workshops and mock interviews, professionalism workshops, and technical workshops to teach programming skills.
Prospective students and firms interested in building connections with UCLA actuaries, always feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
