Applied science will provide you many career prospects. In fact, it highlights many practical aspect of science that is used in the market.
Today there is often overlap and mixing of disciplinary bounds, however, at a very general level:

•Scientists seek to produce brand new knowledge or improve existing knowledge of the world around us using the scientific method.
•Applied scientists seek to use existing scientific knowledge to achieve some goal which is not the production of knowledge via the scientific method.

What are some examples?

•Science: A physicist engages in science when applying the scientific method to create new knowledge about fundamental particles that comprise matter. A biologist engages in science when applying the scientific method to create new knowledge about the life processes of an organism.

•Applied science: An engineer engages in applied science when they use well-known physics to build a bridge. A physician engages in applied science when they use well-known biology to cure a bacterial infection.
