Physics PhDs: Skills Used and Satisfaction With Employment

The AIP has released the latest set of statistics on the nature of skills used and job satisfaction for new Physics PhDs in the US from the class of 2007 and 2008.

There's not a whole lot of surprises here. You can see the type of "Scientific and Technical skills" and "Interpersonal skills" that most of these graduates found to be useful. So if you think that you should be left alone and not have to deal with people, then going into physics is not such a good idea.
