Hello, Some basic info on me -- I graduated with a bachelors in physics and am about to receive a masters, both from very highly regarded institutions and with good performances. All my research and coursework focus has been in theoretical astrophysics & high energy. I have had experience coding, both with things like python & C and also matlab like packages. After a few years in graduate school, I have lost interest in research and wish to move into the 'real world' as it were. My difficulty is that I have few experiences outside of theory, so I do not necessarily know which sector I would both best fit into and also enjoy the most. I have the conception into moving into an analytical field like aerospace engineering, but obviously I have no academic background in this. I have every confidence in my ability to quickly pick up all concepts necessary for work such as this, and have been trying to sell myself in this regard on job applications. To summarize, I want to experience new things and get a taste of some of these other paths. I am weary of spending additional time and money on more years of schooling, unless I am certain that it is directly a means to a career I would be happy pursuing. Therefore, it seems to me internship opportunities might be best, although most seem specifically geared for students studying a particular discipline. Does anyone have experience in a similar situation? Or advice on making such a transition, or on selling myself in the best way to potential employers? Any advice would be appreciated!
