What can I do with a mathematics degree? How do I find a job given my math background? What types of corporations hire mathematicians?

We are creating a Math to Industry seminar to empower students to use their mathematics degree to land rewarding jobs. In this seminar, you will learn about the transition from the university to the job market from mathematicians working at corporations such as Target, Nordstrom, Google, and more. The invited speakers will…

  • share the skills that are in demand (coding, research experience, internships possibilities, etc.)
  • converse about their path from student of mathematics to corporate mathematician.
  • discuss how they use math in their jobs.
  • talk about work life balance and making your passion into your job.
