Pricing Analyst, Tundra Restaurant Supply
I'm currently the pricing analyst at Tundra Restaurant Supply in Boulder, CO.  Basically I set every price in our 60,000 item (and growing) catalog, as well as direct and implement pricing strategy.  It's a huge amount of work, and one that requires a independent mind to create key value-add projects, strong attention to detail, as well as the ability to juggle multiple projects - all of which are similar to getting a degree in math, just a lot more time in a cubicle!  My math coursework from St. Mike's taught me both analytic and statistical skills that I use every day, but more than that, it instilled in me an appreciation of digging into a topic.  Having a strong quantitative background has been invaluable. Even with no work experience, a math degree shows a potential employer that you have a strong ability to understand and digest complex ideas.  Going to St. Mike's also ensured I had a healthy work/life balance, and I try to spend as much time in the backcountry climbing and playing as I can.
