This post is a true reflection of what obtains in the industry unlike what some dreamers post on the net especially with regards to the Oil and Gas sector.

If u r a math grad with a tight gpa like 1st class or strong 2.1( 4.0 and above), you could go places!..... From banks to auditing firms to oils coys to infact anywhere.......my cousin a math grad(finished with 4.42 cgpa) is already in dangote.....he spent only few weeks @ home after his NYSC and boy although I don't know his actual pay package but what I can say is that guy is in money.......his company even sponsored him nd his colleagues to india recently

2.1 is 2.1. whether 3.50 or 4.49. its a range for crying out loud. ur cousin was just fortunate and lucky. his cgpa wasn't the reason why he's had what he's had after service.

I really don't believe this. It sounds like engineering pays most. I am an engineer to the core. Only few, very few are lucky to get that much. If you are saying that the range of salaries of med doctors have narrow range and engineering has a wide range, then I'll accept you thought hook line and sinker

Evergreen123: Doctors at entry levels like house officers earn 2.1m per annum, not 1m as you posited, the pay increases till they become consultants.
This is not to say it is wonderful.
The thing with engineering is that not all eventually end up in oil companies, in fact majority don't get employed there, so, at the end of the day, they might not earn as much as u wrote
Bros e no get as belle go use worry malu(cow) make e slim reach goat. An entry level engineer in IOC earns more dan d CMD of any hospital in nigeria.

Basic addition and subtraction accounts for deposits and withdrawls into/out of accounts.
Maths forms the basis of financial mathematics which is used to calculate (compound) interest earned on savings accounts, or for calculating repayments on loans...
Maths is used in accounting, statistics, demographics, marketing, demographics, finance, valuing company stock etc. etc., all of which are important in running a banking firm.
But of course these disiplines are not unique to the banking sector. This is true of all forms of business.
Basic addition and subtractions nowadays are not done manually. Softwares are there to accomplish all those. That is why they can employ anybody these days and give the person some training and the person is good to go.

The real high earning engineers are those that operate without salary limits. Civil engineers who are involved in the management of capital intensive projects.

Syenite:

Lie! If u don't know say u dnt know. Geologists and engineers are put on same pay level.

Besides some oil companies (indigenous) pay far below what u mentioned especially at entry level.
Geologists and engineers on the same pay?!
Seriously? I doubt!
