Jacobson Explores Career Strategies at the Chicago Actuarial Association

March 12, 2019

CHICAGO – The actuarial field and the insurance industry as a whole stand amid a rapidly evolving marketplace. The industry is face-to-face with ground-breaking changes, forcing shifts and overhauls of its traditional business models and practices. How can today’s actuaries effectively adapt to the ever-changing talent landscape and develop the “most-wanted” skills employers are in search of? Margaret Resce Milkint, managing partner of The Jacobson Group, will share how actuaries can embrace the changes and stay ahead of the curve at the Chicago Actuarial Association in Chicago.

“In the current age of disruption and innovation, navigating the career journey can prove challenging for anyone,” said Milkint. “Actuaries must re-think and re-strategize their career development strategies and practices to thrive in the evolving marketplace.”

Milkint will present “Career Development: Redefining the Journey” on March 26 at XX:XX PM CST at DePaul University’s Loop Campus. The session will focus on the current trends to provide a clear outlook of the industry and explore how actuaries can effectively grow and take advantage of new challenges and opportunities.

As managing partner of Jacobson, Milkint oversees executive management engagements across all industry verticals for the firm’s executive search practice. Her insurance-specific labor-market expertise is highly sought after, and she is regularly called on to share her insights with various industry associations and publications. Milkint co-founded the Women’s Insurance Networking Group, a platform for leading industry females to network and celebrate successes. She chairs the Million Women Mentors Women in Insurance Initiative.  In addition, Margaret serves as the U.S. committee chair for the Insurance Supper Club, which provides a network and forum for senior-level women in the insurance industry on a global basis. She is also a proud trustee of The Actuarial Foundation and a champion for Dive In and the Insurance Industry Charitable Foundation’s Women in Insurance Conference Series.
