My dream job would be to research and study physics but I'm aware that it is an extremely competitive field and the chances of that happening are slim at best. So I am now at a crossroads. I am about to head off to college and I want to figure out what I should do. I definitely want to pursue my curiosity in physics, and at the same time be employed somewhere that I am not making minimum wage selling burgers. I am just looking for opinions, mostly from physics majors, on life after college with a physics degree. Should I go for a PhD in physics? Should I major in physics and another subject like math or engineering? Any thoughts and ideas are helpful, thanks.
