Default Pension / Healthcare

I'm a fresh grad just out of school and have 2 offers in hand. One in Pharmaceutical Actuarial and other in pensions. I'm not sure as which one to choose. Any advice is appreciated.

Consider becoming a yoga-practicing goat farmer instead if none of the P&C offers is in reinsurance.

yes. but does the OP have a goal beyond a generic one. like if longterm wants to work in a different LOB. Obv if just actuarial then flip a coin and join whichever sinking ship seems safest or pays best. but if wanted at some prior point to work health specifically or benefits or life or pc or whatever, that would be helpful to know.
