My daughter is a math major at a good liberal arts school. It doesn't seem like they have any OR courses or talk much about it as a career choice (either for a job or going to grad school in OR.) And, some of her friends at other schools who've majored in things like Mechanical or Chemical engineering are also asking me about OR (and data science).
(Full disclosure: I did try with my daughter. I'm guessing that now that she is away from home, it is now dawning on her all the things I talked about.)
So, I'm going to pull material together. I'll share it publicly-- I think people with engineering, physics, and math degrees should all know about opportunities in OR and Data Science.
Does anyone have some good material, good websites, good blog posts, or other such material that I could refer to? For example, Ed Rothberg recently posted a job on OR being a hot job you've never heard of-- this could be part of the package.
