Learn to program and get a software job. It's what most of the math majors I know do. That or actuary/business analyst.

How do I start applying for internships? Most internships want career specific degrees (finance ones at least). I want to do something finance related but I could apply for internships in almost any career and I don't know where to start.
>>
>>9166785
Those are absolutely the right courses to take. Use those skills to do some personal projects so that you can post them on your github. You will find plenty of work if you can actually use your skills.
>>
The job market is really saturated with normie STEM memers right now. You need to have a good GPA to stand out. Ideally you will do well and a professor will bring you onto his team so you can do a masters for free. Profs know a lot of people in industry and will hook you up

Or you can just get lucky and find an internship over the summer but good luck because these are getting harder to come by

Fair enough, it's just that I notice for a lot of higher end stats/data science kind of jobs the recruiters seem to mindlessly be looking for graduate degrees without actually giving a shit that you might have the requisite skills for the job with an undergrad and maybe some self study. It's not like they wouldn't take a look at your resume if it's interesting but it seems you already start at a disadvantage.
>>
>>9166929
I should add, it seems like they don't even give a shit about the specifics for a lot of jobs and just want a graduate degree in something "mathy", whether it is CS, applied math, stats, whatever the fuck. There is such a wide array of knowledge there that they might accept people whose grad degree has nothing to do with the job and ignore people without the grad degree who have the skills, which is pretty frustrating.
>>
>>9166069
you didn't learn marketable skills and you didn't market yourself. It's not STEM's fault or our fault.

STEM is Science Tech Eng and Math, not Science Tech Eng or Math. You only get 1/4 with a Math degree

>take career advice from people who has time to waste on an anime image board

to be fair, they're right, it is the future. HOWEVER it's not a future with room for everyone. Not yet at least. Things may be different in 20 years when digitalization will force governments in developed countries implement basic income. Until then, good luck finding a job where your co-workers didn't study at a community college.

Got a bachelor's in English with a minor in Geology in May. Got employed as a patent researcher with possibility of advancement to a patent writer at $100,000-150,000 a year.

Any degree is valid for work so long as you know how to look.

This is a dumb option unless you are actually somehow such a huge insurance nerd that you would rather spend your time analyzing pensions instead of taking pure math courses.
Nobody at an actuarial firm gives two shits if you majored in it or not as long as you have exams, and taking courses will consume significantly more time than just preparing for them yourself.

>Did you do research with your professors?
How do you even do this in mathematics? What would your professors possibly need an undergrad's assistance with? You probably wouldn't even be able to understand whatever they're working on.
