What can I do with a degree in physics?

In summary, a degree in physics opens up a wide range of job opportunities in fields such as research, data analysis, engineering, and teaching. While a PhD is required for certain positions, there are also options available for those with a bachelor's or master's degree. Physics is a fundamental science that relates to many other disciplines and provides a strong foundation for advanced studies or real-world problem-solving. Non-traditional career options for physics graduates are also on the rise, with a growing demand for their skills in technology and data-driven industries. A degree in physics also develops critical thinking, problem-solving, data analysis, and mathematical skills that are highly transferable to various industries and professions.

Can someone (or as many people as possible preferably) give me a list of jobs I can do wit a degree in physics. If you can divide them also by the degree type (being bachelor's masters, Ph.D etc.). Don't feel the need to let any idea not be said, I really want to hear them all.

Thanks!
