Hi everyone, I just graduated with my B.S. in Physics and I'm knee deep in the uncertainty of finding a (good) job with just a four year degree in physics. I'm currently writing my resume and people have told me that it should have more physics "buzzwords". This is probably because I am going to post it on places like monster that have automated searches for employers. What are good physics buzzwords that I can put on my resume that would better help my potential job finding effort? You can assume I've had a typical undergraduate education (in the U.S.A.) in all the classic physics disciplines. (Mechanics, E&M, Thermal/Stat. Mech., Quantum, Solid State, Astro., Modern Optics, etc.) And if you're wondering what KIND of job I'm looking for, just something science/engineering/technology related. I like optics, thermal, mechanics and E&M probably the most, so buzzwords that would help me find a job in those related fields would be nice. And by "buzzwords" I simply mean that in fields like computer science, you would fill your application up with particular skills (and in this particular case it would be programming languages you are familiar with, etc.) like "C++" or "Java" skills. Those would enable automatic search engines to zero in on your application and make you rise to the top that much easier. So far I only have "fourier analysis" listed on my resume that I think is remotely useful as a buzzword. I'm just finding it hard in general to list what my skills are that I've gained from a major in physics and minor in mathematics. Please help me figure out the right things to put down.
