Hi everyone, well I am 31 and decided to change careers. I am currently a Law Enforcement Officer and have been one since I was 18 and in the military. I went back to school and got my A.S. in Information Science and Technology from Penn State and am about to finish my B.S. in Computer Systems and Technology (cum laude grad) at Duquesne University.
I am really nervous about switching careers but have worked so hard at juggling work and school that I am not turning back. I am hoping to get into Business Analysis, Project Management, or any other information related field. My technical skills are average for a new grad but my social, communication and leadership are above average since they have been a primary function of my current career.
Do you guys have any advice for me? If you could do it over again what would you have done differently? What should an adult, who is changing careers and looking to do well in IT know?
