Amanda’s Answer

Personally, I took my math skills and went into accounting. There are statistician roles within companies that calculate risks and needs for the company that they work for. There are so many ways that you can go with a math background.

Stacey’s Answer

There are so many jobs that math encompasses. Teacher, Architect, Engineer, Banking, Finance, Accounting. It depends on what type of math you want to do. Do you want to teach it? Build/create it with precise measurements? Or count it? Once you decide what interests you most, you can narrow down your search field of careers.

Hello Mykayla!

Math exists in almost every place in our world. As a subject, it's helped us understand nature and society.

I think a good approach you can use is look up careers that involve mathematics first, and select a degree that will help you get there.

Some fields in math you may want to consider are:

☆ Data analytics: a field where you use tools and process to draw conclusions from sets of data. A good math class to take if you want to pursue this is Discrete math & learn basic set theory.

☆ Biotechnology: a field that uses biology (science) to create usable products. This is a great option if you like both math & science!

☆ Engineering: a big field that requires math knowledge. Some areas that are in-demand are:
- Computer engineering: A combination of electrical engineering and computer science.
- Mechanical engineering: An area where you'll learn a little bit of everything. An option if you don't want to specialize & want broad engineering opportunities.
- Industrial engineering: An area where you'll learn about manufacturing and complex process/resources behind producing products.
- Biomedical engineering: A combination of science, medicine, and math. You can enter biomed with a mechanical engineering degree.
If you enjoy being active and value movement, mechanical and manufacturing engineering might feel great for you!

☆ Cybersecurity: you'll use math to help protect and manage data. Has computer science elements (math & logical reasoning, but specifically focused on data security.

There's many opportunities! Many of these fields will teach you math in specific majors.
If you want to learn more about these, I recommend finding videos on the day-in-the-life of working in [Insert-field] and [Insert-field] vlogs.

Sending you encouragement as you discover ways to use math :)

Hi Mykayla,

I would highly recommend the actuarial field if you have an interest in a math-based career. It is frequently ranked as one of the best paying, low stress careers, and has served me well. Generally speaking, an actuary uses mathematical models to manage risk by analyzing the past in order to help predict the future. The actuarial profession has a multitude of career paths throughout a variety of industries, and you can specialize in what interests you. For more information on becoming an actuary and what we do you can visit https://www.beanactuary.org/ or https://www.soa.org/, or feel free to reach out for more information.
