Question What if you hadn't pursued a profession in act sci?

I was wondering, for those of you who majored in math or act sci, if you hadn't gone on to become an actuary, what would you have gone into with your degree? (Just wondered if act sci is specifically to become an actuary or if there are other possibilties I can look into...)

With just my math degree? I applied with the Census, and if they hadn't been as slow as molasses, there is a possibility I could have ended up there. School teaching can't really be considered with "just my math degree" as there is credentialing involved there as well. Everything else I seriously considered probably requires additional schooling beyond a B.S. (Industry mathematician, professor, physician).
