Hi all, My husband has a Master's degree in Applied Mathematics and we've been job searching for over 6 months now. Only gotten a couple of interviews and sent out hundreds of resumes. I feel like we're doing something wrong because I've always read/heard that people with this major should be "highly employable". The area he's most interested in is risk analysis (as he did a lot of work with Monte Carlo simulations and it seems commonly used in that area) and data analysis/modeling. He has a solid background in statistics as well. But we haven't had much luck finding jobs in this area that don't want very experienced professionals. In his most recent interview they said they want someone who can do the work (creating models) with zero supervision/guidance - and that job posting was for 0-2 years experience. We've been looking for all kind of analyst positions (data, quantitative, financial) in banks, insurance companies, and anything else we can find. Not getting responses. I assume it's because he has no experience outside of academics? In another thread, I read someone suggested getting involved with "Kaggle", which he will be doing. Are there any other resources to gain experience or other advice to get your first math-related job outside of university?
