What Jobs should a Physics Graduate apply for?
(This article contains -spoilers- to the Shawshank Redemption for metaphorical purposes.) In the Shawshank Redemption, Andy Dufresne crawls through a mile of sewage to escape to his freedom. When I look for work, I have this idea of a job that would make me feel like Andy, when he finally emerges from the sewer. However in reality, all of the jobs that I have been applying for feel like the endless pieces of fecal matter that poor Mr Dufresne must have encountered during his trial. I am currently applying to do a PGCE, but I have no desire to become a teacher. Its the job that i would choose if i were a robot and did not care what job i'd do; its just another t**d in Andy's sewer. The only reason that I'm doing it is because the UK is in a triple dip recession and I cannot afford to do nothing at the moment. When I went to University they told me that if you have a physics degree you will easily get a job. Where are these jobs that they speak of? How do I find roles that will definitely hire physics graduates? I'm not expecting the job of my dreams, but how do I find a Job that will make me feel like Andy?

Investment Banking. IT, Actuary. My son was offered jobs in all of these when he graduated with a BSc in Physics. Employers are looking for a logical and numerical brain. He went on to take a PhD and now earns a fortune in IT. UK
