Hi, I am about to start school and I am majoring in Physics. I enjoy learning about it a lot and I want to continue to pursue it in college, but from what I hear is that there are not a lot of jobs out there with physics degrees. I've been talking to a few people who are engineers or have been majoring in engineering and a lot of them have said that all I can do with a physics degree is become a teacher. I considered becoming a professor and found out that the probability of becoming one is very low. I want to know if anyone has some kind of idea of what chances I have of getting a decent paying job(60k and plus) with a physics degree? Also what kind of jobs are out there for a BS degree in Physics or MS degree in Physics I enjoy physics, but I don't plan to live like an artist who has no money. What I really want to do is do my own research and get funding for my own experiments. The only way I am aware of doing that is via becoming a professor. Does anyone know any other way that I would (or group of people) would be able to get funding for research/experiments?
