Alumni Career Panel


Join us virtually for this insightful discussion about careers related to mathematics. In honor of Sun Devil Giving Day, several SoMSS alumni will serve as panelists as they discuss their career paths, how their degrees in mathematics helped them along the way, and tips for students just entering the early stages of their own careers. We encourage questions from students in the audience, so bring your curiosity.
