Main Question or Discussion Point

I have been considering going to school for this quantum stuff, but I would like to know if anyone has any idea what the job outlook looks like.

Is it easy to find jobs?

How well does it pay?

What kind of work do you actually do?

Any advice or anything you can offer me would be outstanding. This topic really intrigues me, but I really need more info on it before I commit myself to years of school.

Thanks.

"Quantum stuff" :) you'll have to be more specific... I imagine you've studied elementary QM and have found it interesting. If you decide to specialise in condensed matter research then I think you should easily be able to find a job as it's probably the main research area in physics these days.

Well I can't be too specific. I am not 100% sure what I want to do. I will make that decision when I am working on my doctorate.

You're going to have to start your specialization earlier than that. I'm thinking at late undergrad studies or as you enter grad school.

sounds realistic. In any case I have a couple years to look around.
