I love mathematics, but the high school teaching salary has me wary of that job. Are there other jobs, besides accountants, that math majors are qualified for? #mathematics #math #mathematics-education #financial-planning

There are many jobs that are suitable for mathematics majors. I used to be an academic advisor, and I had students ask similar questions about this major. If you have an interest in applied mathematics, you could study engineering or become a mathematician. Consider development work. In development, you help organizations raise money, so being able to budget and work with numbers is essential to this position. Other jobs include: statistician, physicist, mathematics professor (if you wanted to teach at the college level, though university-level teaching jobs are competitive).
