Hello, recent math Ph. D grad here. Been applying since the beginning of the year and no luck. It's hard to even find something I could qualify for. I am learning data analysis stuff but I also need to apply to jobs, and I am generally burnt out as can be, so things are going real slow.

My subject area was mathematical logic and theoretical computer science. In particular I studied a form of computable model theory where instead of Turing machines as usual, the computation is done by automata and transducers. Hence, I have some experience with formal language theory.

What are some jobs that you could recommend? I'll really consider anything (that pays well and is at least somewhat dignified). I have no offers yet and I am getting a little desperate. My lease ends soon and don't have too much savings. I appreciate any help.

What are some possible non-academic jobs for a PhD in Analysis/Topology/Algebra respectively that use to a nontrivial extent the tools in their respective fields?

If you have to specify sub fields, please do.

I already graduated with a BA in Math in 2017, and have been working in an "IT" role at a small company since then. I haven't really gained any new or more advanced skills while at this company, and I feel like my growth has greatly stagnated since graduating college and I've been feeling very lost.

I decided to enroll in a pure Math Master's program at the school where I got my BA, mainly with the goal to teach at a community college afterwards as a new career. I already took some graduate classes, so it should only take me 3 semesters to finish, and the cost is probably a lot less than other master's programs at around $10k. I have this terrible feeling that I'm going to hate teaching and that this MA will be a waste of time. Is there anything else I can do with an MA in Math? I've already tried to get a software engineering job and failed so many times that I've pretty much given up on that.

My university (the only research university in the country) doesn't offer a computer science degree. It does however offer a degree in mathematics, with the option to choose "statistics and data analysis" as an orientation in the final 2 years. What kind of job opportunities are there in the tech industry with a math degree?

Hello. I am a 16 year old who is currently attending a prestigious high school in the Caribbean. I realized that I have a great love for the study of Mathematics and I decided I wanted to become someone who would study and advance that whole field. Also, someone once said to me, "If I ever found something I love to do, I should find a way to make money from it," and so I would appreciate if I could receive any advice on what path i should take in achieving my goal, any things i should research, jobs to look into and so on and so forth. I am also looking for a new summer job having to do with mathematics(I realize that this field is quite broad so maybe analytics, specifically) but don't really know where to start. Any help would be appreciated.

How employable am I as a mathematician with only an associate degree, MOOC courses to fill in the rest of a bachelor's degree in mathematics and a few minor published papers?  
What are possible sources of employment, if any?
