My aim here is to state positively that in going into industry a physicist has every opportunity for a rewarding, satisfying and successful career. The match between him and industry will depend both on his training and on the kind of person he is, and I will accordingly have something to say about the curriculum for physicists, both in physics areas and related fields, and about desirable personality traits for a physicist in industry. In addition I will discuss the responsibilities of industry to the physicist and comment briefly on the future prospects for the job market, where I see a probable steady, though small, increase in the number of positions that will become available.
