"A statistician will always have a job?" I attended a college fair, where one would meet the department chair of each program, and inquire about one's interests. I, obviously, was talking to the mathematics department chair, about job prospects, opportunities, and potentiality with the different concentrations offered, for the mathematics major. I asked about job safety for statisticians, or something along that idea, and I remember his verbatim being, "As a statistician, you'll always have a job." Is that true? Was he generalizing? I find the profession really appealing, too, because I would be able to learn about so many different subjects, while I do the job, and I'm one of the vary largely minded people, of whom is interested in a multiple of different subjects. I also enjoy abstract mathematics and some philosophies behind the mathematics of probabilities; great mind-masturbation. I'm still a high school senior, so I have loads of time to make my mind up, by the way. What do you all think?
