Graduate Student Seminar

Storrs Campus

Prof. Matthew Wright, Department of Physics, Adelphi University

Career Paths of Physics Degree Holders

My presentation would cover statistics on physics degrees and jobs, provide information on APS career resources, and give guidance on steps students can take to find their career fit. I will also talk about my own career path. I have a background in physics, have experience outside academia (management consultant), and currently work at Adelphi University as a physics department chair. The content would be useful for students, postdocs, as well as faculty, since mentors in physics departments often lack career development resources, specifically for careers outside of academia.
