Potential Contract to Hire position. Usually the team will make a decision on conversion within the first 6 months, however sometimes it may take longer than expected as well. Please focus on candidates with strong mathematics/analytical backgrounds, whether it s through employment or education. Recent grads can work great if they have a Bachelor's degree in Mathematics.

Highly preferred if they have a degree in Mathematics degree or something analytical. Must be open and looking to get into a career with growth opportunities. Jump in and hit the ground running. Independent role. Will have assistance during training but must be a self-starter. Employment-based non-immigrant visa sponsorship and/or assistance is not offered for this specific job opportunity. Additional detail from the manager: I tend to stay away from those that have too much tech skills/certifications as these folks tend to want to work on systems instead of calculations. I also shy away from those that have mainly HR experience in areas such as recruiting, onboarding, employment, labor relations, as these folks typically don t do well with the being strictly in narrow benefits related position (and usually like the social component of the work). There are some folks that have too much heavy duty math degrees/skills/certifications that tend to get bored with the position really quickly. I think the sweet spot is relatively new grads with a math related degree that have some experience in a corporate setting. There will be little to no client contact. If there is it would be through our internal case management system (like email). Each client team that they would be assigned to would have performance metrics that candidates would be judged on quality and efficiency of work being the biggest ones. The manager has given me some additional feedback in regard to what they looking for, and not looking for with the degree... Straight Mathematics degree - These folks tend to be better suited for physics and engineering type roles. Not a great fit for this role. Actuarial math - perfect when candidate does not want to take actuarial exams and doesn t know where else to use these skills. Statistics/economics/business majors also do very well in a variety of different roles in the Pension Analyst Groups. The following Pension Analyst Pre-Screen is required for all submittals. Please have the candidate answer these questions directly and paste this onto the candidate's resume in the submittal... 1) Please describe what you know about the entry-level Pension Analyst position and provide details in your own words about how your background and experience makes you a strong candidate and good fit for this role. 2) Describe a time when you had two competing deliverables, both with tight deadlines. What was the situation? What was your approach? What was the outcome? 3) What personal strategies do you utilize to ensure you maintain high performance in the following areas? Accuracy, Efficiency and Prioritization. 4) Why are you interested in this opportunity? 5) What qualities are you looking for in a new company? 6) What qualities are you looking for in a new role? 7) Are you currently eligible to work in the United States without a visa or sponsorship? 8) Will you require a visa or sponsorship at any point in the future for employment in the United States? 9) Describe a time where you were required to complete your job remotely for an extended period of time. What were your job responsibilities? How long was the duration? What strategies did you use to remain engaged, focused and for team collaboration?
