What Industrial Jobs Can I Get With a Math Degree?

From Thomas Network:

While not every math major will get the chance to work on something as exciting as the Enigma Code or black holes, there’s one career that will provide an endless stream of fascinating challenges to keep even the brightest mathematical minds busy: manufacturing.

Mathematicians are in demand for these four skills in particular:

  1. Analytical skills
  2. Problem-solving skills
  3. Critical-thinking skills
  4. Quantitative reasoning skills

The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics expects the demand for math majors to grow by 30% from 2018 to 2028. As of last year, the median annual wage for mathematicians was $101,900.
