This summer, I had an internship at Ernst & Young at the Transaction Advisory Services Department. I want to build on this experience, and currently I am applying for summer internship positions, such as analyst, trader, and market researcher. At Brandeis, I am majoring in Applied Math and Economics. I am seeking advice on possible positions and internship opportunities in this field, and was also wondering which elements of my experience I should highlight when applying to these internships?

I am a senior, graduating in May with a B.A. in mathematics and a minor in economics. I am looking to enter the job market, but at the moment I am not sure what career path I would like to pursue. I am originally from Long Island, N.Y. but am planning on moving away after graduation. The city that piques my interest the most is San Diego, although I am open to living and working anywhere.
My previous working experience is varied; I have had internships in residential real estate as well as in government, and since my sophomore year have had an on-campus job in the athletic department.
Potential career-related interests of mine include sports and public transit, and I would definitely be interested in jobs in those fields. Working in the public sector or for a non-profit also piques my interest, but I am willing to consider anything.
If anyone was in a similar situation towards the end of their undergraduate years or has any advice to offer, I would appreciate it very much. Thank you in advance.

As a major in Math, I am looking to stay in the Boston area after graduation. I am looking for work environments that offer leadership opportunities, especially in ways that allow me to use the skills I learned at Brandeis in both of my majors. I love writing and math and I would love to talk to alumni who share these interest. Thanks!
