Helping Students Discover The Future: the Physics Careers Resource Website
Written by Dr. Crystal Bailey the Education and Careers Program Manager at the American Physical Society  in College Park, MD. This article from the APS Summer 2011 Forum on Education newsletter discusses the biggest challenges physics educators face today. In spite of the fact that only a tiny fraction of physics bachelors can reasonably expect to become physics faculty, students consistently name this career path as the "typical" track for physicists.  Therefore a reliable, accurate source of information about physics careers is essential, in order to give students a clear picture of what's possible after graduation, and beyond. Bailey discusses the way that the comPADRE Career Website does this.
