This is a blog post about my other blog, Degree of Satisfaction. Here is how the very first post there starts.
What do people with physics degrees go on to do with their lives once they leave school?
How do they get their first job?
Are they happy with their careers?
These are a just a few of the many questions you may have as a practicing, aspiring or former student of physics. Statistics gathered by the American Institute of Physics aren't quite enough to answer these serious questions. What I aim to deliver here is complementary. I want to provide a richer kind of data: the stories of people with a degree in physics and how their lives unfolded afterwards.
