SIAM (Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics)
Are there careers in mathematics outside of academia?

The answer is a resounding YES. The Society for Industrial and Applied
Mathematics (SIAM) has published its latest brochure on applied
mathematics and computational science careers outside of academia. The
20-page publication includes information on emerging career fields,
examples of companies and organizations that hire applied mathematicians
and computational scientists, and profiles of professional working in
these fields today.

The SIAM Careers Brochure answers many of the questions that high school
and college-aged students may be asking with regard to career
opportunities in the mathematical sciences, including:

- What's out there for someone with my interests and background?
- Where can I work?
- Where are the up-and-coming job opportunities?
- How should I pursue my studies?
- Who are the people working in industry today?

Profiles highlight professionals at Google, IBM, IDA, Merck, Michelin,
NSA, and many other organizations and companies.

With this brochure, SIAM hopes to increase young people's interest in
and motivation for the study and pursuit of careers in the mathematical
sciences. Since the previous edition in 2003, SIAM has updated the
brochure to reflect the current fields of applied math and computational
science and the emerging career opportunities for today's students.
