Think about today’s job market and how your mathematician would fit in the working world.
Identify a current job opening that would best utilize your selected mathematician’s knowledge and skills. Use sources such as “Indeed” or “Monster”, to find job postings. Save the link to the posted job description.
Be creative and have fun pretending to be the famous mathematician you selected. Write a letter, as the mathematician, to the prospective employer indicating how “your” knowledge, skills, and experience make you the best candidate for the job.
