Gamma Iota Sigma members,
For our next meeting, we will be attending the Etiquette Dinner put on by Career & Professional Development. Throughout this dinner, an etiquette expert will be giving you tips on the proper way to eat certain foods and on how to handle various situations. There will also be time for questions which is always interesting. The food is excellent since they are simulating a potential employer taking you out for a meal. This dinner does have a cost of $5 (which is very worth it) and you must RSVP. Please make sure you RSVP and pay the $5 cost for the dinner by Wednesday, March 25. Also, please let me or one of the other officers know that you will be attending so that we can make sure that we can all sit together.

There’s an interesting article in Business Week entitled “Insurers Are Using Rap Videos to Make Being an Actuary Look Hip“. Anyway, Business Week‘s “bottom line” is “The insurance industry is desperately seeking hipness to help fill more than 500,000 job openings by 2022.”
Here’s the rap video, courtesy of Liberty Mutual Insurance Company:
