There is certainly no set pathway when it comes to forging a career as an actuary, just ask Meray El-Khoury.

Meray (Chief Insurance Officer, MetLife Australia) has worked across countless industries. This includes both traditional and non-traditional areas, but credits her time working in superannuation, notably in a five-year stint at Sunsuper, as the most influential period of her impressive career.
