Math Jobs and Careers

I was just wondering what some of the jobs and careers people on this forum have/had that involve their mathematical endeavors. Specific or not, what do you feel about the working world relative to the knowledge and skills you've attained? Are there jobs you could walk right into? Ambitions? I don't know. I'm simply curious about anything you more experienced math buffs could offer.

Thanks.

So far, my questions have been pretty ill-conceived, I know. Haha. They will get better. smile

In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
If it ain't broke, fix it until it is.
Always satisfy the Prime Directive of getting the right answer above all else.

I also had a lemonade stand when I was a kid...

Re: Math Jobs and Careers

I did that for 17 years.

You are a good detective, you have found a bumpkin right here.
