According to the 2015 Annual Survey of the Mathematical Sciences, 1901 PhDs were awarded in the USA. The report shows that 52% of those recipients are working in academia. This is a decrease from the 2014 survey which stated that 56% of new doctoral recipients went on to academia. Thus, what support do we, as academics, provide to this growing population of business/industry, or government job seekers? The goal of this paper is to provide insight into programs tackling this question along with relevant information and advice for new PhDs interested in jobs outside of academia as well as those interested in making successful mid-career moves.
