    Job Skills I finally got my bachelor's degree in physics, now what?

    It's been 3 months so I'm sure this is still very early to "give up" on the job search, but I was wondering how other people did after their BS/BA in physics from college! The job search is for sure hard and I realized a little too late that I lacked some experience in CS. I wasn't planning on...

    Programs Want to study physics, but pressured towards engineering

    I really want to study physics and math, but my family is pressuring me towards engineering. They say that physics job market is nonexistent, that I'll be homeless, that studying engineering is more lucrative, and that you can transfer to physics more easily. And that job employers will always...

    Physics No job market in academia?

    Hi everyone, I'm just starting my first year in undergrad and I've started to think a bit more about job prospects in physics.
