Interning at small company with only a handful of actuaries will likely be much better experience in terms of landing a full time job, and it will give you a better idea if you really want to actually be an Actuary.
I think I read a similar post from you on r/actuary

A valid point. I've heard of at least one huge company doing this, but I don't know if it's totally ubiquitous.

I think the question might have been which large companies have stopped EL hiring. I wondered about that myself, although I really don't care, since I'm at the other end of my working lifetime.

Pluto is no longer a planet and I am no longer an actuary. Please take my opinions as non-actuarial.

My latest favorite quotes, updated Nov. 20, 2018.

I should keep these four permanently.
