10 Career Options

The two most common career paths for mathematical and computer science PhDs are the tenure-track academic path discussed in Section 11 and the industrial/government lab path, discussed in Section 12.

There are other options that might be a better fit, though, either at the beginning of your career or as your circumstances change later.

See Sections 14.8 and 14.9 for a few helpful links.
