Job Skills Finding your field

  1. Nov 1, 2016 #1
    Hello again everyone,

    Sorry for posting so much, (but I'm trying to find the most info I can to make the best decisions.)

    Is there a website out there that can help you find the best fields to go into for the state you live in or are going to go to school at?

    Example: Cal would be good if you want to go into aerospace.

    Look in an almanac. Look in industrial directories and examine what you find in the various categories. Published information from bureau of labor statistics? online job sites to see various job types and their locations. Compare to your interests.

    The American Institute of Physics publishes various reports on employment for physicists in the US. It has a list of companies that hire BS physicists in each state. You might determine the disciplines and or skills that are desirable for your state.
