I am having a hard time finding a career that will be challenging while still allowing me the opportunity to use my analytical math skills.
Gallup's StrengthsQuest might help. All online and cost is just $20. For me and my colleagues, it was very accurate. https://www.strengthsquest.com/home.aspx
With a bachelors degree in finance and accounting, and a love for analytical math, you may want to consider one of the following:
- management consulting - business analysts work with finance numbers daily to try and decode solutions for complex business problems
- Data analyst/scientist - you will need to get some coding experience, but it is a great job for people who like manipulating data to develop insights
also take a look at the following link for jobs for people who like math https://www.trade-schools.net/articles/jobs-for-math-majors.asp#entry-level
All the best
