How hard it is to get an entry level actuary job?

I heard that if you pass 1 or 2 exams before you graduate from college, you will most likely get an entry level actuarial job. Can anyone speak from experience of theirs or peers if this is true? I recently heard that there is a person with 2 exams passed and still don't have a job yet.
