Exit Options from Pricing Role

What are the exit options for a quantitative role in actuarial pricing (i.e., statistical modeling, data science, software development in Python) as a first job? Specifically,

  1. How do you consider the chances to switch into roles like Quant DeveloperQuant Risk Analyst, or Alpha Research in the investment industry and get compensated for the experience? The fact that such job descriptions often require some type of domain-specific knowledge or experience (regulations, models, front office experience, etc.) are concerning.
  2. If not those roles above, can you think of any other exit options in the financial industry?
