Main Question or Discussion Point

Hi,
I graduated with a 1st class in "master of physics & bachelor of science", but I cant seem to find an interesting job that I am able to apply for.

I am not interested in software development or the nuclear and defense industry.
And it seems these are the only industries in the UK employing Physicists.

I have tried looking at oil & gas and engineering but it seems the HR of these companies dont acknowledge physicists :(

Any suggestions ?

EDIT: I called TOTAL recently and the HR said I cant apply for geophysics graduate positions, because they earth scientists

So I called another oil and gas company about resoiuvr engineer and they said I wouldnt qualify

It doesnt make sense because my modules are as applicable as engineering modules to these job
e.g. my masters project involved computational astrophysical fluid dynamics, which is pretty much analogous to regular fluid dynamics theory
