Careers for mathematics graduates

University of Stirling (25/11/2009).

What do mathematics graduates do? And what skills do employers think they lack? This talk highlights some of the broad range of careers options for mathematics graduates and points to several sources of career inspiration. Following this is information on the skills a maths degree gives you and those it perhaps does not. Looking at what skills employers think mathematics graduates lack will help you in finding a job - when you sit down in a job interview, what skills is the person opposite you expecting that you lack? Being able to surprise them may just get you the job! The talk rounds off with a look at the benefits of professional membership and some information about the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications.
