He left Columbia in his junior year to become an Actuary, completing the examination of the Society of Actuaries in 1924 to become, at age 21, the youngest person ever to do so.

I left the profession for (primarily) personal reasons in 1984.
I managed restaurants/tended bar. Finally, I was a full-time, stay-at-home father, until about 2 yrs ago.

I remember one FSA who quit his job as an actuary to become a very successful life insurance agent!

Another possibility is they might as well retire early and enjoy the rest of their social lives.

Default roads less traveled

I have a fairly young friend who quit shortly after ASA to become an AFDC case worker.

Another ASA got frustrated with the last exam, quit & got his mortgage broker's license instead.

A former supervisor, FSA, retired early to become a social worker -- back to college & everything.

Two other FSA friends made their fortunes, retired around 50 to play golf and the stock market. A third went back to college, became a futurism professor.
