About 350 actuarial students from the University of Minnesota, the University of St. Thomas, and some of the other local and regional schools came to the Fair. They met with about 26 companies.  It is the largest fair of its kind in Minnesota and serves as a single point of reunion for all insurance and consulting firms interested in recruiting actuarial students. Nathan Steckman, outgoing President of the 2019 Actuary Club noticed that among employers the recruiting  trends this year included more emphasis on computer programming skills, more opportunities for Sophomores and having at least 2 exams passed to gain an internship.
