I am an incoming high school senior in the greater Pittsburgh area who is interested in studying physics at the collegiate level. My plan is to eventually get a PhD in Physics and work at a research position at a university. That is a PLAN. I am aware that academic/research jobs are not incredibly plentiful, and I want to be employable even if graduate school does not work out or if, after getting my PhD, I am unable to secure a job at a university or a similar lab. My secondary interest has always been engineering, aero/astronautics to be specific. I have heard that Physics majors have no problem getting engineering jobs but I am nonetheless concerned. What are your experiences with such situations? Additionally, outside of academia, how is the market for physicists? And any other tips and tricks that could help me out moving forward! Thank you in advance for all input. EDIT: I plan to minor in engineering, Will that help?
