M3 Math Majors Matter ----------------------------------


The Early Career Profiles Network

In response to the question "What can I do with a math degree?" the AMS (American Mathematical Society) has launched the Early Career Profiles Network, supported in part by the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation. This is a web resource on which mathematics departments systematically provide job profiles of their recent bachelors-degree alumni. These early career profiles provide informative snapshots of the early career paths of alumni from both small colleges and large universities, highlighting where they work and how they got their job, how they use math on the job, their academic background (mathematics courses taken or areas of concentration in mathematics), and their advice for students. To date, profiles from 16 schools have been posted, and more will be added on an ongoing basis. Readers may browse profiles either by industry sector (e.g., arts and entertainment, education, finance and insurance, government, information technology, etc.), or by undergraduate institution.

View profiles of individuals employed in various industry sectors at http://www.ams.org/early-careers/.
