I am a semester away from graduating with my Bachelor's Degree in Physics, and I am not sure which jobs I should apply for. The only two careers I know for sure would be High School Education and Process Operator. But because of my B.S. I tend to be told I am overqualified for the Operator position. Recruiters are afraid I am just using it as a stepping stone into engineering... but I don't feel like I am qualified to be an engineer :( maybe I just don't understand what an Engineer actually does on a day-to-day basis? Perhaps if I list a few of my qualifications, someone can give me some ideas? And if you are feeling extra generous, tell me what the responsibilities are that I am qualified to do? please... :) Qualifications: B.S. Physics AAS Industrial Technology with Concentration in Process Technology. Experience: Computer and Cellphone Technician ----- at a small technology retail store that did sales and repairs Tire and Battery Technician. --------I change/fix/rotate tires and change batteries. Also do headlight restores... Maintenance Internship at a refinery. ----------- I am not really qualified to do maintenance work. I just followed the machinists and millwrights around the plant and observed, lent a hand. I was more helpful to the contractors who were assisting the machinists crew. Eventually they put me with the preventative maintenance crew (I believe that's who they were). We walked around the plant checking the temperatures of various equipment and so forth and entered the data into spreadsheets. That was more my speed. I was able to help them a bit with Excel (I'm pretty good with excel. Not "writing macros" good, but much better than the average joe). Probably worth mentioning: I don't know how to program. Degree GPA: 2.933 (with 9 more hours to go) Major GPA: 2.286 (with 9 more hours to go) Cumulative: 2.688 (with 9 more hours to go) My major GPA is low... I had a couple bad semesters. Where it just didn't work out... But I retook those classes and did much better. Some (or many) people are able to work full-time and go to school and do very well... for me it wasn't always the case. :( But I made it through... and if I have to start at the bottom somewheres, that's ok with me. I'm going to try and calculate my gpa for my major GPA excluding the classes that I repeated. EDIT: Just tested it and found that the major gpa calculation method used by my university is the average of all PHYS courses. If I exclude the ones that I repeated for a better grade, then my major gpa is 2.818. It isn't a 3.2, but it is a heck of a lot better than a 2.286. Perhaps I can explain that away?
