ELLIIT career talk #4 and women’s fika

University mathematics in the Airline Industry

What can I do with a degree in mathematics? Who might be interested to employ me? How do I find my next job? How does my career advance? How much mathematics will I be using in a job in industry? And what do I have to if I (don’t) want to keep working at a university?
If any of these questions has crossed your mind previously, then come to our series of career talks to find out!
