Alex J. Johnson ’12
Actuarial Analyst at CBIZ Benefits and Insurance Services, Cleveland, Ohio

“My education at Thiel allowed me to find a job immediately after graduating and proceed very rapidly through my exam process. As an actuary and mathematician, I am not expected to be a well-rounded individual, but rather a simple ‘number-cruncher.’ Having a liberal arts education provided me with the tools to be someone who can also express concepts effectively and professionally. [My professors] made sure that not only knew the material to pass the exams, but that [I was] fully prepared to be an actuary.”
