I am at starting to become increasingly worried and I need help/advice/what ever you can give me. My major is mathematics, I will be getting a BS in it next year. I have an interest in Analysis and Probability and will be taking a years sequence in Integration and Measure that year. My original goal was to get an MS(maybe a PhD) in Applied Mathematics. I have now spent some time researching jobs and I am starting to become afraid. I always knew a BS in Mathematics wouldn't offer a lot of options but I had always thought an MS would get me in the door in industry(if the PhD fell through). Now I don't know anymore. Anyone have any thoughts? What is the best area in mathematics for employment? Is an MS in applied Mathematics useable as far as careers go? What are the job prospects? - Excluding Actuary what is there? Secondly, what can I do to best outfit myself, making an MS degree in Mathematics more attractive?
