The AIP Statistics webpage might help you find some of the answers you're looking for. The information there can show you who's hiring physics graduates, the job outlook, etc.

The other more subjective questions depend on a lot of factors such as your own personal goals, what you enjoy doing, how you learn, etc. A BSc in physics is not for everyone. If your primary goal is professional training then it might not be the right fit for you - you might want to look at engineering instead. Physics is an academic degree and the primary focus of most undergraduate programs is to train students to get into graduate school. That said, lots of physics graduates go on to have wonderful careers even after leaving academia.

Is Applied physics a better option?
That depends on what (a) what your goals are and (b) what "applied physics" means.

With respect to the latter, remember that not all physics or applied physics programs are equal. You have to look at the course calendar and see what options are offered, what electives you'll have. Those will vary from school to school.

With respect to the former, think about what your goals are with your education. When you graduate are you seriously thing about attending graduate school? What kinds of skills are you hoping to gain from your education? What kinds of problems do you want to be able to solve?
