Math trip

Hey Pud,

I’m one semester from graduating with a BS in Mathematics.

I would like to do some traveling and working in Europe (math related or not) for a year or two before I come back to the States and pursue a career and/or grad school.

What kind of job opportunities would allow me to have time to travel around Europe and have some fun, while giving me enough income to live comfortably?

And where in Europe should I go?

Steve

Steve,

You are such a nerd.

You’ve got the right idea, except for the “live comfortably” part. That would be a terrible waste.

This is that last time in your life (probably the first too, nerd) you’ll ever have the opportunity to aimlessly bum around a foreign land, meet strange new friends, and have anonymous sex with European women.

You’ll have plenty of time to “live comfortably” when you get back to the States.

I assume you don’t speak any languages other than English (C++ doesn’t count, nerd). If that’s the case, move to Prague. Nobody is actually from Prague or speaks Czech. Everyone’s actually from Western Europe (Italy, France, Germany…) and they all communicate in English.

Get a job at an ex-pat bar and you will be fucking awesome. Thank me afterwards.

Pud

ps- Nerd.

    Prague??? WTF sort of advice is that?? EVERYBODY goes to Prague these days. Some self-absorbed chump even wrote a dreadful novel about it.

    Send him to Belarus, where he can communicate with the locals using tantric interpretive dance!!! THEY get it.

    a computer programmer calling a mathematician a nerd? excuse me for stating the obvious, but: pot, kettle…

    Damn, PUD, you are good!

    Praha is cool–dollar for dollar you’re just looking out for him so he doesn’t have to spend lavishly. I get that.
