I am a new graduate double major in math and physics. My current plan is to take a break from school and apply for graduate school this winter (so graduate school should start fall 2013.) But when I start searching for jobs (so I can pay off some loan), I run into some problems.
I notice I do not have any skill other than knowing some math and physics. Almost all the jobs I found required some skill in some programming languages. Statistics jobs require statistics programs (I actually took two upper division classes in statistics, but most of the homework were done with paper and pencil) and software engineering jobs require experiences with languages like C, C++, java, etc.
So my question is what kind of jobs are available for a math/physics major that does not know any programming languages? If there aren't any, should I go ahead and try to teach myself the required languages?
I appreciate any advice.
