I'm majoring in math (2nd year) right now at Lakehead University in Thunder Bay, Ontario. I'm considering switching to a bigger/more well known school that has more credit in the real world. I want to be employable immediately when I graduate, and having an Honours in math from Lakehead to me feels about as practical as ... well it doesn't seem practical at all. I feel that if I had an Honours from a school that people of heard of, they might be more inclined to hire me. I initially intended to go for my Ph. D. but upon further investigation, realize that there aren't many jobs from that point. I was thinking about becoming an actuary, but I was also considering switching programs into engineering. I don't really know which is better. Something I should clear up, however, is that I would like a career involving math, but to be honest, my main concern is money. I wouldn't mind doing less math for more money. This is where 'actuary' comes in; apparently if one works as an actuary for over 9 or 10 years, they can make upwards of 150K. I think what I'm getting at is that I don't want to waste any time. I'm willing to do a ridiculous amount of work, under the condition that it pays off sooner than later. If anyone has any advice on what I should do, pertaining to switching schools or future jobs, please let me know. Thanks.
