Zhaoyang’s Answer

I really liked maths and physics when I was in high school. In college my major was statistics and now I am a data scientist. I would say data scientist can be a good option. The reasons are:
1. the job demand for data scientists is huge. And the base salary for new graduate is far above average.
2. By digging deeper into different types of data from different sources, you will find many interesting stories about customer behavior. And by using those data you will be able to predict future trend.
2. You will get the chance to use the most advanced modeling and analytical tools in your daily job. And you will soon realize that the analysis result is helping your company making the right decision.

Rahul’s Answer

The combination of physics and statistics is super spicy! A good place to look for roles that involve these two topics at work could be the national laboratories, e.g. the PNNL (Pacific Northwest National Laboratory) in my area keeps coming up with multiple roles at all levels - give it a shot :)
