They will be telling us about how math is used in finance and banking, and career opportunities in these areas.  So if you are thinking that banking and finance is an area you’re interested in, then by all means come to the talk!

Also, there is an \epsilon chance that they will be handing out sacks of money like Scrooge McDuck.

As always, there will be Pizza!

Addendum:  Our speakers gave people a good idea of what it’s like to work in the banking industry and the sort of skills and background which are helpful.  If you have more questions, or if you would like suggestions on how to get your foot in the door, please email Jon Kujawa.  He has the contact information for Cullin Faison.  Cullin said he would be happy to answer people’s questions and help them make contacts with banks in Oklahoma which might have internships and other available positions.

  1. Hey, this is unrelated, but… The other night I found this website when trying to decide if humans could hear 20Hz (really really low bass). Turns out I couldn’t, but this website is fun because it lets you download free “sounds”. …Just in case anyone wants to put together a BBC recorded novel someday.

  2. Is this talk geared more towards employment opportunities or finance theory? I’m a bit curious about the subject, but I’d be more interested in concepts than just a straightforward employment talk.

    • Quentin,

      The details of the talk are up to the speaker. Probably there will be some of both topics.

  3. I had a really good time at this talk! Even though I plan on becoming a secondary math teacher, he really made his job sound interesting. Although it seemed interesting, his job entails a LOT of responsibility. With the economy the way it is right now, he has to question every loan that comes his way.

  4. I agree, his job sounded as though he had quite a bit of responsibility and stress recently with the economy the way it is. He did a really good job with the presentation even though it seemed to be by the cuff.
