Hello all- I'm looking for some general advice and thought this would be a good forum. I fell in love with physics after my sophomore year of undergrad. As a Psychology major who hadn't even taken a math class since my junior year of high school, the Physics department cautioned me against radically redirecting my courses; however, I went against their advice and took as many Physics and Mathematics classes as possible in my final two years and ultimately graduated with a Physics minor. Now that I have graduated, I'm at a loss for what I should do going forward. The only thing I want to do is to return to school and continue studying Physics but I still need to take multiple classes before I could even be considered for a PhD program. At the same time, I have immense pressure to start working. I though a happy medium would be trying to find a lab technician job. Even though not directly physics related, I feel that it might be a good way to boost my scientific credibility? I've submitted my resume to countless sites but I keep hearing that online submissions are lost into a vast vortex of doom. As you can probably tell, my inclinations are altogether vague. I feel I have this deep passion for Physics but no real concrete direction going forwards. I tried reaching out to professors in my university department but had difficulty getting any insight or even developing substantial connections (as a female trying enter into an all male department, I always wondered if the chilly atmosphere was real or in my head). At best, one of the professors I did manage to connect with suggested that I continue studying Physics and eventually go on to graduate school. While this suggestion really underscores my own feelings, I'm terribly lost in translation at the moment. Does anyone have any input, advice, personal stories that might help me? I would love to hear any input about the best ways to find lab technician jobs- or any other suggestions.
