Hi everyone,

I am currenly considering a career in astrophysics. But I am not sure what I will be doing with a degree in astrophysics. What are the career options after studying astrophysics except being a professor?

Astrophysicists develop the kind of data analysis techniques in high demand in a wide variety of industries, including but not limited to internet companies (Facebook, Google, etc), financial companies, and consulting firms. The high dimensionality of the problems in astrophysics mirror these fields really well, so the fit is actually pretty tight.
