With the rapid development of higher education and the increasing number of college graduates each year, it is of great significance to research the employment problems of college graduates majoring in mathematics. This research uses the literature analysis method to discuss the research on the employment situation of college graduates majoring in mathematics in the past in China. The results show that: (1) Almost research focused on three aspects: the employment status, its affecting factors, and the cultivation strategies to prompt graduates’ employment. (2) There are obvious deficiencies in some places. Such as research methods. In the past, most researches have adopted the method of theoretical speculation, and few empirical methods have been used, which has greatly reduced the credibility of the research results. (3) There are also some blank spots in previous research. For example, there are rare types of research on the development of mathematical ability and innovation ability of mathematics students based on the employment perspective, and almost no research on how to establish an employment ability evaluation mechanism for mathematics majors. Therefore, future research should start from a broader perspective and adopt empirical methods to make this research more comprehensive, systematic and in-depth.
