Hello to all and thank you for reading this post I graduated with a B.S. in physics from Texas State Univ.(2008) not to be confused with Univ. of Texas. Anyways, I have looked for jobs and most of it points to the oil industry, which I do not really want to end up in. I am really interested in photovoltaics and am pretty sure that is the industry that I want to end up in( if not, some other form of alternative energy will do.) So here are my questions: 1) Do most photovoltaic companies only hire physicists with a mimimum of a Masters? 2) Is there or will there be a niche market, so that small startups will be able to offer services or products to photovoltaic users that are not already available from larger companies? 3)What are the best websites to stay up to date with the photovoltaic tech.? 4) Am I wasting my time asking these questions? Thanks for everyone's help in advance.
