The Astronomy Career Game
WIC image

After 12 months, I have resigned myself to the idea that I missed the employment boat for the new crop of astronomers. It has been fun thinking about astronomy as a career, but I now have to confront the sad reality that I will not be one of the lucky ones to survive the post-doc culling and land a stable position. I now have to reassess what my strengths are, and start applying for non-astronomy positions. I may have to go back to school and get a teaching credential too. There’s a big demand for science and math teachers in high school.
