Although general mathematics does not train specifically for a certain career. It shows to employers that one can think logically and critically. If one enjoys solving problems over writing than math is definitely for them.
It is because of a college advisor who suggested that I major in Math that I was hired right out of college for an agency in Washington, DC and began a 45 year career that has taken me around the world and given me a life's work that has been challenging and rewarding. If a person has the mind for it, I would highly recommend a major in Mathematics. If I had to do it all over again, I would definitely choose this major. The cons are that it is a difficult major and the most people who major in in are studious with no time for fun. The pros are that there are many career avenues after college.
