Currently a Physics Lecture, have my MS in physics after having to stop or hault my PHD due to lack of research funding/support/ decent people. Finished my PHD coursework, & Comp exam. Salary isn't that great as a lecturer. Only 45/year. Teaching physics in highschool starts you at 55 where I live, but you need a masters in ed just to do that. Thinking about going into engineering, taking the FE exam and swinging a job there. Don't wanna go back to school now because I don't have the money. Still have college loans. I have a friend who majored in EE, with a crappy 3.0 gpa, making close to 100per year as a project manager in construction. I had a 3.7, honors and all that crap.... each day I get more disgruntled. Money isn't everything but it would be nice to be compensated and not have to worrying about getting by on your salary. Suggestions?
