Careers from Physics Degree

  1. Dec 17, 2008 #1
    Gday all,

    Just writing today about my current problem - not knowing what I want to do when i graduate, from my Physics degree.

    At the moment I'm not particularly keen on a lab sort of position, where I would be restricted to a lab for say, 95%+ of a given work day. I would like a active job, where I am working outside for a lot of time, instead of being cooped up inside an office...
    I know that really narrows things down, but the thing is, I really don't know what I can do with my degree.

    If you guys could help me out with this it would be great....
    Can I do more with my degree, then become a lab tech? If so, what can I do, what are my options, etc?

    My mom is a sun astrophysicist. If you like to work with a telescope and always have the "subject of research" before your eyes, consider that! :P
