Careers In Mathematics

What Employers have said about hiring Mathematics Majors:

Students have asked “What should we do to better prepare ourselves for these careers?” Speakers and employers have recommended that students should:

  1. know how to program,
  2. develop good communication skills (i.e., speaking and writing),
  3. have some background in some other STEM field such as statistics, computer science, or biology, and
  4. have experience working intensively on a hard problem whose solution is unknown (i.e., do an undergraduate research project or a summer internship).
