Once a physicist

Profiles of physicists who once studied for an undergraduate or postgraduate degree in physics, but whose career has now taken them away from a physics-based environment.

However, here they talk about how their physics training has played a vital role in their careers. This section is especially useful if you are not sure about your career options.
