    Hi, I'm wondering what jobs there are available in the field of physics, outside of academic research.

    What job do you do and do you enjoy it? Do you feel it uses your skills as a physicist well?

    I know there are lots of jobs that involve hefty amounts of engineering (I currently do one!). Where does a physicist fit in with all this?

    When I'm doing engineering jobs or jobs that aren't really physics, usually it's my mathematical modelling skills and a crisp quantitative application of the scientific method that are the important contributions from my physics training.
