Need Advice on Major/Profession

  • #1
I know there must be thousands of threads like this describing the exact same situation I'm in, but here's my shot at getting the words of wisdom I need.

Like most people here, I enjoy physics. A lot. I'm only a college freshman taking physics II, but I really think physics is my favorite subject. That said, I don't think I desire to do research or teaching. I have heard of physicists being hired for jobs unrelated to physics purely for the problem-solving ability one develops through attaining a physics degree, but I'm not sure on that either. So, I have two questions:

1. What careers can a physicist involve himself in?

2. To aid in that, what minors or major would nicely compliment a degree in physics?
