Because of the great number of job possibilities out there, it can be difficult to know exactly what job will be the right job for you. This can especially be the case for those high school or college students who are at a place where they are needing to decide where they will go in the future. For anyone who is in this place – or, for anyone with children who are in this place – the best approach is to find something you are good at and to settle down with a job that will allow you to thrive in this area. For anyone who has spent their whole life being “good with numbers” (and who actually enjoys numbers!), here are a few of the best jobs to keep in mind.

Accounting: Accounting can seem like a boring job to some, but for those who prefer to work with numbers over working with people, it can be perfect; accountants typically handle the money and taxes for both companies and individuals. While many accountants work for large accounting companies such as PriceWaterhouseCoopers, Deloitte, and Ernst & Young, others work directly for companies and businesses, and others run their own private practice.

Engineering: For those who want to work with both numbers and computers, a great field to look into is engineering. Engineers work in all different sorts of areas, with engineering professions belonging in such disparate fields as physics, computers, biochemical, and many more!


Finance: If you are a great mathematician and also enjoy working closely with people, a career in finance might be the perfect place for you. If you take a job in finance, you will usually either deal directly with clients, or you will deal directly with the brass of the company for which you work. The study of finance can also be beneficial to anyone who feels they might want to apply the knowledge and expertise into personal finance and investments.


You will usually find good salaries and great job security when it comes to jobs that deal with numbers. Consider a career in accounting, engineering, or finance if you have long had a knack for numbers and have started to wonder exactly where this knack will take you.
