One career path that interests me is an operation research analyst. This career path interests me because I would be able to think logically, use analysis and mathematical skills. Also, because I am not a very creative person working with numbers and logical thinking is where I feel most comfortable and would be able to excel more than in other jobs. I am very good with numbers and I am a very logical thinker and I can work well under stress, these attributes would help if I had this career.
To become an operations research analyst having a bachelor’s degree in math business or industrial engineering is what most entry-level professionals have. However, most employers favor master’s degrees in these areas. Since being an operations research analyst interests me, if I were to go into this career, I would look into getting my degree from Princeton University.
The median annual salary for an operations research analyst is $78,630.
