Need Advice on Major/Profession

  1. Nov 5, 2011 #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?
