As my husband and I have been chugging towards moving on with our big scheme, he has just finished up with the first preliminary step of taking yet another of his oh so fun and grueling actuarial exams. Meanwhile, I've been keeping myself preoccupied with helping my neighbor redo her bedroom while her husband is away on business. We were dorks and didn't take a before picture, but the results are a-maz-ing!
I find it's definitely better to do something to get your mind off the actuarial exam even when you're not the one taking it. Those suckers are harsh. They just are. I found an article on line about how this whole actuarial exam process effects even the spouse of the actuarial student and I wasn't sure whether to laugh or cry about how accurate the observations of the writer (another actuarial student) were. A kind of super scary roller coaster interrupted by mass repetition of mathematical formulas and bad governmental regulations with a very short time constraint dropped into the mix. FUN!
So leading up to this sitting for the exam and keeping in mind that my husband is having major surgery next week, he had told the 2 recruiters that have been helping to set us up with contacts that he would be concentrating on studying for his test and wouldn't be available for any job stuff until after the test. That was a few months back. Sure enough, an email came through yesterday from 1 of the recruiters with a time stamp that indicated that it was sent during the time my husband was taking his test. The email indicates that there is an intriguing opportunity in Dallas, TX.
After some research on the company, my husband plans to answer the email with interest in this opportunity while trying to temper that with some careful sidestepping of the fact that he will be completely out of commission for a bit here during the initial recovery from his surgery. And yet we don't want to put these people off for too long.
I see phone interviews from the couch in the near future...
