Mailing of Resume Booklet

For the 1996 graduating class of the Actuarial Science Specialist Program, a booklet of resumes was compiled and sent to a number of the major employers of actuaries in Canada. This endeavour met with reasonable success, and a similar mailing is planned for the 1997 graduating class. In addition, information on 3rd and 2nd year students in the program will be included in the mailing to help match students to summer internships. If you wish to have your resume included in the mailing, please fill out an information form at the Dept. of Statistics office in Room 6018 (6th floor) of the Sidney Smith Building. There is a $20 charge for graduating students and a $10 charge for 2nd or 3rd year students to have their resumes included in the booklet. The mailing is planned for mid-January, 1997. Please have your resume information submitted by Jan. 6, 1997.
