Job Prospects for a Physicist and an Aerospace Engineer

  1. Aug 20, 2012 #1
    How difficult is it to acquire a job in these professions? Which would you recommend? I have discovered that the career prospects for a physicist (who works in research- astronomy, particle physics etc) are bleak but what about for an aerospace engineer?

    Also, I live in the UK and yield a higher amount of knowledge on physics in comparison to aeroplanes. (This may be because I have been interested in physics for longer and was reading more about it before I discovered aerospace engineering as a potential career path).

    Refer to my posts, but do not let that turn you away if your interest is deep with aerospace. Talk to as many people as you can who have had the experience as well.
