Spotlight on Hidden Physicists

Share This:

"Hidden Physicists" are people with a physics background, but without a typical physics job. Nearly 90% of all physicists are hidden physicists. The testimonials here are taken from Radiations, the physics honor society magazine. They are prime examples of the wide variety of careers available to physics majors -- careers you might have never even imagined! They include a businesswoman, a speech writer, a priest, a consultant, an anesthesiologist, a minister, a fighter pilot, a video game developer, and many many more! Check back for future additions to the list.
