The Industrial Physicist

In July 1995 the American Institute of Physics launched a new publication, The Industrial Physicist, that initially ran as a supplement to Physics Today. TIP was aimed at those of us who ventured into the industrial world instead of following the traditional path into academia. In addition to featured articles about industrial applications of physics the magazine contained book reviews, new product reviews, and profiles of physicists working in the private sector. It soon became a regular quarterly publication and was up to six issues per year by 1999. The web site for the publication indicates that circulation grew to 60,000 subscribers before rising costs prompted AIP to discontinue it in 2005.

TIP came out during my final year of graduate school, which was perfect timing for me because that was when I began thinking about what I might be able to do in the industrial world with my physics degree. I was sorry to see it go, but past issues are still archived at AIP and provide a great resource for any physicist looking for opportunities in the commercial world. I suggest that you check them out.
