Subject: Mathematicians at Work

For many more examples of math on the job, see "Why Study Math?" from the 
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) pages of the Math Forum's project Ask Dr. 
Math:

http://mathforum.org/dr.math/faq/faq.why.math.html

On this page follow the link to close to 40 firsthand accounts from 
Mathematicians at Work, career profiles telling what some college math majors 
are now doing, from an Air Traffic Control Systems Analyst and a Lawyer to a 
Data Capture Facility Troubleshooter on the Hubble space telescope. The 
authors of these essays describe a wide variety of careers for which a 
backgound in the mathematical sciences is useful.
