Hello all, As I've mentioned elsewhere, I'm currently in the last semester of a coursework masters degree(which i dont consider as a true postgraduate degree) in electrical engineering. my recent academic circumstances have rekindled my hitherto dormant interest in pure physics and mathematics and i'm very serious about it so much that i want to pursue an advanced degree in mathematical physics and a research career in the same thereafter. also i'm aware that enthusiasm alone wont help me in the admission process anywhere, which is why i've decided to spend some time (after completing my degree), studying the fundamentals and foundations to prepare myself to any sort of rigorous graduate work in the future. now, since i'll be graduating soon, i have to find myself a job to survive and i thought i can try for a simple job (that need not pay high) that wouldn't be very taxing and help me with my science pursuits. i was considering teaching (math/physics) in high school as one such option, coz i'd have to anyway work on math/physics. could someone advise me on whether teaching as a short term career would help me? are there any disadvantages of the same that i'm not aware of? or any other suggestions that'd work for me? i'd really appreciate your help. thanks a lot! Vijay.
