I certainly wonder why physicists aren't included in this list. But some articles say that one of the worst jobs in science is being a theoretical physicist, and it's alleged that it's because so many of the top models being developed, such as string theory, supersymmetry theory, quantum loop gravity, etc. have had practitioners working on them for decades with nothing to show for them experimentally. The Higgs model was a success, but the others, well, not so much, not yet. It's supposed to be science, but for many, it feels like it's faith-based. Waiting for mathematics to show its "unreasonable effectiveness".

@Calvin Lin Thank you very much for posting this and opening for discussion !! I saw this thing just now .Does this list hold good even for 2017 curious to know .I am guessing it will .What makes an actuary the best job is it because of the tough exams with low selective ratio ? I heard somewhere that Nobel laureate Milton Friedman couldnt clear the actuary exams and had to become an economist Not sure about it

Who is an Actuary?

Pranjal, originally, an actuary figured out how much longer it'll be before you're dead. Nice.

Seems interesting!

@Pranjal Jain An actuary is someone who deals with financial uncertainties of the future .With tightening regulations worldwide there is great scope for the job in the banking ,insurance and healthcare .Anyone with love for mathematics and statistics can surely give a shot at these exams .The path to become one in each country is different

how to make a career in mathematics...?

Aman Gautam - 3 years ago

Pretty easy. There are a lot of doors that mathematics opens up to you. People are appreciative for the rigor and thought processes that get developed as you explore further in mathematics. There will be many jobs that will be reliant on Mathematics and Computer Science in the near future. These will include jobs that do not yet exist!
