The door is open to numerous options still. Math and science are foundations for your thought processes, but not actually used every day. The more difficult math is kept for accountants and other specialty fields.

There are many opportunities out there. O*Net Online has a good career listing and information. Try those for more ideas. (onetonline.org)

What I recommend is the following (in no order, and you can do all or just some of them):
1) Figure out an industry you are interested in.
2) Figure out a job type you are interested in
-- What are the job functions?
-- Is it providing a service to someone?
-- Is it a certain service, or is the service you are thinking of just something you are familiar with?
-- Decide if its the service you want to deliver, or the response you want to get from who you are helping.
3) Go on an informational interview. This is your chance to find someone in a position you are interested in pursuing, and lets you get their perspective on what the job is truly all about, and how to get there.
4) Get an internship in a field you might be interested in!
