Not to mention that these companies simply do not want to hire new graduates (i.e. without years of experience) who are not foreigners, because they expect we will demand too much money. They won't even offer the lower salaries they want to pay! Hell, I would accept a lower salary for good working conditions. I am not unreasonable about it. Yet us new grads don't get interviews.

You have very specific and excellent advice for students starting out in grad school and I find your experience really interesting. I expect this to be useful to me in the years ahead. Would you mind telling more about your general experiences of grad school and afterwards? What kind of mathematical work do you do? (I am beginning grad student in applied math.)

I like work; it fascinates me; I can sit and look at it for hours.
