What are some job opportunities available to a mathematician?
A couple years ago I graduated from a top university with a PhD in mathematics. I have always loved math and this is the path that I chose when I was in high school, however I have had difficulty finding the right job.
Perhaps because of being raised in a different culture it is very difficult for me to brag, but here is my attempt at a bit of bragging :-) I am a fairly good problem solver. e.g. I am pretty good at solving Math Olympiad and Putnam type problems. I have also had a decent performance in math competitions in high school and in college. I also was a member of my country’s IMO team and we were among the top 10 teams.
I have a few publications in pure mathematics but I have not been very successful in publication in recent years.
I have applied for a number of academic jobs but unfortunately I haven’t had much luck with that.
I have experience teaching math at different levels. I have taught at top universities and not-so-good universities, but I’d like to have a more reliable job. I am open to both academic and non-academic options.
I live in the US and plan to stay in the US but I am not a US citizen.
Any suggestions would be much appreciated.
