Geophysics career help

Post by no_advance12 »

Hi, so I'm doing a degree in geophysics ( I'm in my second year), but I'm having trouble deciding what i want to do after I graduate. A lot of jobs seem to involve significant knowledge about rocks and i've found that I really don't like rocks lmao, minerals are okay but i would much rather work in a sector that involves a lot more maths and physics. I also would like a bit of field work involved as i dont want to be sitting at a desk all day you know. I'm just curious what kind of jobs others who did a degree in geophysics have and if anyone has any advice for me as i'm really struggling to find something to specialise in, thank you

I suggest you consider an entry level position with one of the geophysical survey contractors, either as a summer student or upon graduation. That will get you out in the field and give you an idea whether you are suited for that sort of work. It may also give you some insight into the geophysical equipment technology development aspect where you may be able to apply your math and physics interests.

And here a lot depends on where exactly you will work, who you will be employed as a whole. Because, for example, I had a problem with my employer not paying social benefits and taxes for me for some time, and now we are solving this problem together with the specialists https://zashita.co.il/. But it seems to me, if I had been more serious about choosing a place of work, there would not have been such an incident
