Careers from Physics Degree
Just writing today about my current problem - not knowing what I want to do when i graduate, from my Physics degree.
At the moment I'm not particularly keen on a lab sort of position, where I would be restricted to a lab for say, 95%+ of a given work day. I would like a active job, where I am working outside for a lot of time, instead of being cooped up inside an office...
I know that really narrows things down, but the thing is, I really don't know what I can do with my degree.
If you guys could help me out with this it would be great....
Can I do more with my degree, then become a lab tech? If so, what can I do, what are my options, etc?

Doing a degree in physics equips you for doing loads of things. The skills you get are limited to the mathematical sciences - problem solving and mathematical skills - but are very useful in a range of areas, for example industry, finance other areas of science that are seen as less mathematical like the biological sciences etc. A lot of these types of job will be office based.
Have a look around for jobs that require independent problem solving and numeracy above all else. Of course, there's always postgrad study in sciences or engineering too.
