    I just recently graduated with a BA in mathematics, but I am having a hard time finding employment. I live in the northeastern Ohio area. There are a few insurance companies around here but that's about it, and they never even called me in for an interview. My gpa was 3.1 out of 4.0, my resume and cover letters have been great. Just wondering if it's hard to find a job with a math degree (entry level jobs)??? I'm thinking of relocating possibly if the right job came along. I'm not sure if I should go back to school for a different degree, because it's almost been two months.... Any comments or advice would be very appreciated. Thank you

    M*W: Have you thought about teaching math? My daughter had a math major, but she changed it to finance to have better opportunities. She will still have teaching to fall back on.

    Good luck!

    I would reccomend going to grad school or some other further education. Computer science or physics would be a great complementary degree to math, and a MA would make you much more marketable. Plus, you could be a TA while getting your MA to help pay for it. Maybe look into teaching also (requires a lot of courses though).

    I would skip the MA and go direct to PhD. that's what I did.

    Math majors also have a strong background to become good electrical engineers, which pays well and is in rather good demand.
