Regarding the OP, I'll give two answers.

1 exam, 2000.

Technically, I started work as an actuarial intern in late 1998, with 0 exams, and stayed in that job for 16 months. I only stayed for a few months after passing my first exam, because I didn't want to work in Life.

if you're talking actuarial-specific jobs.

I had another job for 2 years ('99 - '01) before a career change, then 6 months into that "actuarial analyst" job I took Exam 1, passed, and got admitted to student program. Same job, just "student 1" replaced "analyst".
