Finally, the proof you’ve been waiting for. Jobsrated.com has analyzed 200 jobs, and rates math at the top. Software developers have a good showing as well.
Here’s the top 12 (I went to 12 because I rather liked the idea of a philosopher being on the list):
5. Software Engineer
6. Computer Systems Analyst
9. Industrial Designer
And not to worry: for those not inclined to the hard sciences, the soft ones have a showing as well.
