Default I finally graduated

Well I finally did it at the age of 34. I graduated with a Bachelors of science in computer and information systems. Prior Army so thanks for the no student loans and currently 7 years in federal law enforcement. Wanting a career change about 3 years ago and finally finishing school is over with, but now on to getting IT certs and hopefully a new job.

Maybe with a new job I can finally afford to learn how to hunt lol.

Where are you located? I believe we are going to be hiring 1-2 IT techs but depends on what this budget looks like, may get pushed back to next fiscal year not sure yet.

Federal Law Enforcement will pay more than average IT jobs especially if you are a LEO and not support in your current job. Plus you can retire in 13 yrs

Good luck on whatever you end up doing

Hey way to go. I was in your boat. Pre-vet then graduated with a ton of hours and a Computer and Information Systems degree. Followed that up with a CPA, was an insurance adjuster, then opened a fishing lodge and now I build houses.

Don’t let anything define you!! Best of luck!!
