I spent 8 years 6 months and 28 days in the united states air force and was force to get out on a medical discharge with a bad back.  went to school and became an elementary school teacher, after receiving my degree i thought better of it and took the postal exam.  i have worked for the postal service for 20 years.  so if you have package delivery problems i know and understand.  brian (kbh2o)

I worked four months as a substitute teacher and decided to join the RNoAF instead... so I can understand you going postal Tongue

Student. I have five classes left to finish my undergraduate degree in applied mathematics, but I am taking two extra classes to prepare for graduate school. After grad school, I am hoping to start a career as an industrial mathematician, but who knows whether or not I'll be able to find work. I chose my major in order to pursue my passions, so I'm hoping for the best, when I start job hunting. Lol.

what is, or what would do, an industrial mathematician???

interesting! ;-)

Mathematicians can be employed in many different industries. I would like to work on engineering problems, or possibly certain physics problems. I have a fondness for certain branches of mathematics that find heavy application in engineering, such as complex analysis and differential equations.

I did a final project for a programming class, last semester, on a topic in mathematical biology. I don't know much of anything about biology, but I got to learn about predator-prey relationships in animals, and write code to analyze the population densities of the animal species, based on mathematical models. That was a lot of fun, because I was bringing together differential equations, computer science, and biology. That's the kind of thing that some mathematicians will do in their industrial work. Another example of work in applied mathematics is operations research, which I learned a bit about when I took a class on linear optimization. The goal in that class was to study theory and methods of maximizing/minimizing a particular value in a system that is subject to linear constraints. If, for example, you were producing shaving soap, and each essential oil had a different price, and each soap line had different ingredients, and perhaps some soaps took longer to cure than others, and a whole bunch of other stuff like that, then you would want to know how many of each soap to produce so that you make the most profit possible. That was one of the weirdest math classes that I have ever taken, because we spent an entire semester studying one specific type of problem, rather than a range of topics. Lol.

I would think you'd be a hot commodity for our military defense community. 

Politics aside...this is a good time for you to find a job as the Trump administration is really bolstering defense systems.

Currentry I work for the U.S. government

^ That also explains all the problems we've had a few years back Tongue.

I make sure that my body is regularly fed and hydrated, and that I get appropriate levels of exercise and sleep. I suppose that this is the absolute minimum that one must do for a living.

Nah I'm far from a desk guy. I would elaborate but when I say my current job sometimes it's get political, that's why I kept it vague. I do not wear a suit and tie, sit behind a desk or lie for a living.

Are you an export specialist? AKA BPA?

Well, I am stuck in sales.   My entire life preparation was to get me a job in operations.  But, I am stuck in sales.  I am injured, and, in the field.  It is killing me. I need to find a desk job, and, quick.  I was Executive Support Staff for 12 years, for a sales rep/distributor/sales engine company.  I, also, served as bookkeeper, of the company, for a couple-of-years.  

I have done other things, too, but, kept that job, as a backup/second source of income.  

I would seriously consider relocation, to pretty much anywhere, in the world, except the anti-podes.  I love those countries, but, I feel that life being backwards might be a bit too much, for me, to handle.

In geography, the antipode (/ænˈtɪpədiː/) of any place on Earth is the point on the Earth's surface that is diametrically opposite to it. A pair of antipodes are two points that are antipodal /ænˈtɪpədəl/ to each other and are connected by a straight line running through the centre of the Earth. Such points are as far away from each other as possible, a great-circle distance of 10,800 nautical miles (20,000 km).

In the Northern Hemisphere, "the Antipodes" may be used to refer to Australia and New Zealand, and "Antipodeans" to their inhabitants . Geographically the antipodes of Britain and Ireland are in the Pacific Ocean, south of New Zealand. This gave rise to the name of the Antipodes Islands of New Zealand, which are close to the antipode of London.
