sorry if this is a repost, i am sure this question has been asked MANY times

BESIDES teaching high school
what kind of jobs can a bachelor's, masters, and PhD in physics get you?

Money is not my primary concern, i would like to actually like to apply my nowledge and actually acknowledge that all the hard work that i am currently doing in undergrad (and definitely grad) by actually using it. I know of people who have gotten very good marks in physics only to go and work in banks.. i dont want that.

Is getting a job iwth a physics degree less lucrative than with an engineering degree?
