Top 9 Hidden Gem Colleges for Employers Hiring Actuarial Science Majors

Actuarial Science Hidden Gem Index AwardMinneapolis, MN, April 20, 2015 — College Recruiter, the leading niche job board used by recent college graduates to find entry-level jobs and students to find internships, today announced the 12 winners of its 2015 Hidden Gem Index for the best colleges and universities for employers who want to hire high quality graduates who majored in actuarial science.

“There are a lot of awards out there for best colleges,” said Steven Rothberg, president and founder of College Recruiter, “but they almost all focus on starting salary, percentage of graduates employed upon graduation, or percentage of graduates employed within their chosen career path upon graduation. There’s nothing wrong with those rankings but they fail to tell the entire picture. They miss schools which are hidden gems because they do an incredibly great job of taking students who may not have been able to get into the most expensive or most prestigious schools but who are hired into the same types of jobs with the same types of companies paying the same types of starting salaries.”

College Recruiter used its custom research product to generate this ranking. Our database includes 185 majors at virtually every one of the 4,000 one- and two-year colleges and 3,000 four-year colleges and universities in the United States. A custom labor market or salary research report can tell an employer, for example, what the going rate is for a recent graduate with a certain major at a specific school. Other common queries include data related to SAT scores, gender, ethnicity, as well as tenure and turnover of employees. (more…)
