"Why a Little Physics Goes a Very Long Way"

Physicists have long had the reputation of being innovators and disruptors, often making important contributions outside their own field and in many cases launching entirely new disciplines.  What allows them to do this is their training.  Creativity and problem solving are learned skills, and studying physics is one of the best way to acquire and hone such skills.  

You don’t need a graduate degree to reap the benefits of a physics education.  And you don’t need to work in physics to put your physics to work.  A particularly potent skill set – attractive to a very broad range of employers – is the creativity and problem solving of physics combined with a good knowledge of coding.  We’ll look at why this recipe for success is rather unique to physics students, why it works so well, and how you can get it.
