we have prepared a survey about the possible sectors of employment for a physicist. So, if you are a physicist, enter here and participate! It won’t take you more than 2 minutes!
UPDATE (12/04/2012): here you have a quick analysis of the first 143 answers…
Question 1 – Employment sector:
The main employment sectors are universities and other public research centers (33%), IT (23%), engineering (17%) and high-school teaching (11%). A 17% of participants work in a sector not proposed in the survey, mainly renewable energies, consulting, administration and news media.
Question 2 – Was your bachelor’s degree in Physics enough to get your current job position?
Question 3 – Employment status:
Question 4 – In which country did you go to college?
Most of the participants studied in Spain (75%), followed by USA and Canada (18%).
Question 5 – Where do you live?
Here we noticed an interesting fact: 11% of the physicists that studied in Spain and Italy have emigrated to other European countries or the United States.
