There are currently more than one billion jobs in mathematics that require math skills, and those jobs typically pay well above $80,000.
And if you want to get paid that much, you need to specialize in math, said Scott Hartsfield, senior vice president of analytics at Cognizant, a startup that helps people with math problems.
“The job of an entrepreneur is to figure out what domain you’re going to go into, and what you’re not going to do, and then figure out how to create a service that’s going to help people do that,” he said.
In an effort to create an automated system to predict job openings in fields such as engineering and medicine, Cognizants recently launched a job search tool.
The company said the algorithm is designed to match companies based on a variety of factors, such as the industry, location, size, and other factors.
But Hartsfields said that the algorithm will not be able to predict whether a person will be hired or not based on their past work.
For example, someone who has worked at a large company with a large amount of employees might be less likely to get a job in a smaller company that’s less specialized in those fields.
Hartsflons prediction algorithm does not take into account other factors like the company’s growth or market share, Hartsford said.
He said that his team is currently using the algorithm to predict the next hiring opportunities for a new engineering software development company that has recently hired two new engineering engineers.
The algorithm has already predicted some jobs in the field, but that hasn’t changed the company or its future plans, he said, adding that it is “not going to be an accurate predictor of the next job openings.”
But he said the company is looking for new engineers to work on the next version of its engineering software.
“We’re looking for people that can bring in a bunch of fresh talent, and have the ability to get those people to the next level,” he told Recode.
“If we’re going with a big group of people, we’re probably not going for people who can work on a small team and then get them to the bigger team.”
