Hi Shailu,

Hope you dont mind me telling you this, but how come you have chosen a G Course, without knowing its future in the market.
At the same time, I think while pursuing the course you could have got all information from your professors or co colleagues.

Anyways coming to your question as such as a mathematician you would mainly be into the auditing profile or as a financial advisor helping business grow.
So you could opt for government banking jobs.

At the same time, since you guys are also good with statistics which involves computations and predictions. Thus you have opportunities in terms of government climate control office.

Hope this helps.

Wish you good luck..
