If you are also interested in and skilled with some computer languages (e.g. SAS and SQL), there are opportunities as data, business or systems analysts. You can trend data and identify trends and outliers as a data analyst; produce feeds, reports and insights as a business analyst and produce metrics and recommend performance improvements as a systems analyst.

It depends a lot on what your passion and strengths are. In today's Big Data world Stats and Analytics is in high demand. But to take advantage of Stats you will have to focus on a career path that helps you learn more of math and analytics.

My recommendation would be for you learn little bit more about Business Intelligence, Analytics, Big Data etc.

You can take following paths:
- Become a Statistician
- Get into IT but focus in Business Intelligence and Analytics
- Get into Corporate Product/Market Forecasting or Demand Modeling
- Get into Wall Street Market Forecasting/Modeling
- Get into Big Data Analytics that can apply to any field as disparate as Retail forecasting, Human Genome Patterns, Wall Street Correlation etc.

Try to google around and let me know if you want to talk about them.
