I'm currently 26 years old and just about to finish my masters in computer science. I am very interested in the field of CF. My undergraduate degree is in Law and Society which I received from a four year school. I have also previously worked for the DoD where I was given a secret clearance. I worked as a systems administrator for roughly 2 years before the army installation I worked on was tragically closed due to a realignment. Thousands of people lost their jobs or were forced to retire.

Being young, it did not weigh as heavily on me and I decided it would be a smart move to collect my unemployment and pursue the masters degree I had always wanted. I am very computer friendly and I have worked as an IT support tech, a repair tech, and a web designer (self employed) in addition to the above. I have also interned in a local court system with a prosecutor and learned a bit about how court works behind the scenes. Basically it all boils down to the fact that I love technology and computers are my life. I would absolutely love to combine my two passions into a career and CF seems to be exactly what I have been looking for.

I am extremely interested in this field and I am wondering if my above credentials would be attractive to potential employers or even just enough to land me an internship so I can gain an edge with a bit of experience. Obviously, there are plenty of other factors involved in being a worthy candidate, but I am just talking in a general sense. If not, what would you recommend me to do in order to better myself so that I can achieve my dream and become employed. (Besides learning all I can about the field and its subject matter and what is included in the sticky above this post Smile)

I know this question seems to pop up all over this forum, but I just wanted to get a more personalized reply.Thanks guys. Any feedback would be much appreciated.

Definitely. I'm currently in Nj, but I'm willing to go almost anywhere in order to get started.
