    Just being very curious, what do graduates of Cosmology, Astrophysics, or Astronomy do for careers? Do some or many employers wonder if these graduates have practical or sell-able skills? These people must have had other courses and have dealt with technical, equipment, engineering skills and may have/would have dealt with engineers and some equipment; maybe even done some computer programming. I just wonder, what do these graduates face when they try to get jobs, jobs which are very likely not within those observational subjects?
