Main Question or Discussion Point

I graduated with a physics degree last summer and I have yet to find a job. Originally I was aiming for a graduate degree in astrophysics so I spent most of my time doing "theoretical research" instead of internships and what not.. I didn't get any acceptances and now I'm struggling to find a job with my degree. I got turned down to some positions because of my lack of experience. Now I'm planning to go back to school for an EE degree but not sure if I should? Any advices?

If you are going to do that, at least go back for a master's degree and not a second baccalaureate.

A good option may be to do an MSc in an engineering subject . The qualification and the practical experience that you could gain would certainly lead to better job prospects .
