Promoting O.R. : The Science of Better
As operations researchers pursue their careers, a wide variety of industries and specializations remain open to them. In the United States, the Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that major employers of operations researchers include air carriers, computer and data processing services firms, financial institutions, insurance carriers, engineering and management services firms, telecommunication companies, and the Federal Government. The Bureau also writes that job opportunities in O.R. should be good because of interest in improving productivity, effectiveness, and competitiveness, and because of the extensive availability of data, computers, and software.
