Main Question or Discussion Point

I am currently a sophmore in college as a mathematics major. I see that a lot of the career advice on this page that encourages me to obtain job skills, something applicable to the real world job market. Does anyone have any examples of specific careers in applied mathematics/physics/computer science they would like to share? I want to start narrowing my ideas to something more specific:smile:

When they weren't using the giant whiteboard they were programming in SQL and R. So i'll start off by saying:

Statistician / Statistical Programmer

I work as an actuary and enjoy the job. Most actuaries are math majors, though it is not a requirement.
