Completed pure math. Ironically only jobs I qualify for all jobs that don't require technical skills. I might have as well majored in Sociology.

no shit moron. you need a PhD for anyone to trust you with literally anything, because that's who you're competing with.

No

Only took Pure Math courses, not Stats
>Marketing
No
>HR
No
>Finance
No
>Network Engineer
No
>Teacher
No

Basically 0 skills. Ability to prove shit means nothing. It's like having a philosophy degree. You have to make up shit about how your skills translate to X ability that matches a job description which you aren't qualified for.

sorry your parents lied to you like this. a degree doesn't guarantees much. now start selling stuff to people if you want to make money or keep on studying if you want to be a professor

I want to get a PhD but in a different field. I have to pay for the course differential. Then apply.

Woooow so your precious pure math degree requires a PhD to be useful? You do realize that most degrees will get you a job right out of college, right?

I don't know man, I got a job as a programmer with only a degree in math. It is not like I have any certs or anything.

You are just lazy.

That said, as someone with a job, don't get fucking fooled. Get a PhD and become a university professor right fucking now. Don't look for a job.

LOL

meanwhile, I , as a brainlet software engineer, got a 83k job straight out of undergrad.

mathematics master race huh?

how, most interviews ask cs questions from courses i never took

thing is I can program and program well. but icompanies around here look for sexy frameworks in shit i never worked with, mostly web shit.

i studied theoretical cs but can program in java well. but these companies want 3-4+ years experience but knowledge in react, node, or whatever the fuck

I was never asked a hard CS question. Just general programming and basic algorithms shit.

>i studied theoretical cs

If you already study pure math why would you fuck yourself up more by studying theoretical CS? The only bit of theoretical CS I have ever read has been the most basic of basic algorithm shit. All I really studied has been programming.

It is a bit dumb to study two theoretical fields.

Oh, so you're one of the idiot math majors who does nothing outside the field. I've met a lot of you guys. Pretty embarrassing lot.

my pure math interest was mostly in theoretical cs. but i did really well in my programming classes... like i said most tech companies here seem to want the latest tech stack expertise ... shit they don't teach in school.

i want to get a phd in cs anyways... but will focus in more applied

yeah because initially i just wanted to do math, i later took cs courses but didn't help with job situation. most local tech companies dont give a shit about cs courses, they want latest tech stack knowledge

Do research (unless you're a brainlet)

i'll continue to do a phd

I meant, as a job, not just to pad some CV, because pure math usually leads to this position if you are succesful. Who cares about companies when you've got maths.

Let this be a lesson to any undergraduate on this board. Diversify your education, your lessons don't stop as soon as you leave the lecture hall.

This is a very competitive world. If you're in STEM you need experience in:

>Programming
>Applied Mathematics
>Grant writing
>Tutoring
>Research presentation
>Resume / CV writing

There are plenty of things out there that will propel you farther than your cohorts, but there's no point in listing them as they can be field dependent. This whole idea of "bare minimum" is not going to work in your favor when you hit the job market. Anyone can get good grades with effort, but going above and beyond your curriculum is key.

Not saying OP is lazy, but there's so much more he should have / still can do.
