I am currently on the job hunt after finishing my Masters degree in physics. I also have my BS in physics as well. I have been told that looking for jobs in engineering and finance will be where i have the most success, but it seems as though every company has very specific job requirements (such as experience using a specific type of software, or working with very specific systems). Although I am applying for jobs in California at the typical defense contractors and such, I am starting to feel discouraged that I may have to go back for another masters in engineering or something. It has been about a month to month and a half and still haven't heard from any employer. Is this a normal experience for some?
