Looking for an entry level job or internship in physics? This is an overview of how to approach the search and a list of companies that might have relevant entry level and internship opportunities.
Lots of jobs as a physicist require an advanced degree, but there are still opportunities for a recent grad as a research assistant or technician. You might work in an observatory if you focused in astrophysics, or with NASA as a researcher, or with an engineering firm, or as a software developer if you have a computer science background. You can also teach at the secondary level.
For any of these positions you’ll certainly need a bachelor’s degree in physics, as well as analytical and mathematics skills, an ability to think critically, and speaking and writing skills.
