About careers in mathematics and statistics
The question "What jobs are available for a graduate with a major in Mathematics?"
does not have a straightforward answer because Mathematics is an integral part of so many different occupations
, and many times not so
explicitly as to be readily identifiable as a mathematical career. As a beginning,
the following documents and links give one a quick overview of the broad areas of
occupations in Mathematics, some specific titles of the jobs available in these areas,
and some sectors that hire people with these skills. They accomplish these in slightly
different ways. Some provide insight into minors or double majors or activities that
would be valuable for that occupation; one suggests areas of interest based on what
kinds of Mathematics courses you enjoy the most. Several provide information about
the occupations, and give links to jobs-sites and to further information.
