Just out of curiosity..When people talk about careers in physics why don't they ever take these in minds? Most people it seems to me think about taking physics to industrial work. And are Goverment Labs and National Labs the same thing? If not why do people not thing about those either when pursuing physics degrees? I'm sure considering goverment, national lab, private lab,industry blahblah there will always be some place for a physicist to work. If I'm correct skills that a physicist obtain and their sought after degrees can set them in high paying jobs/careers that may not be in physics. I know I'm going to pursue physics so I'm hardly asking these convince or reinforce myself.
