R&D is where I would like to work as well, since you would always be working on the latest and greatest, I don't see anyone getting tired of that for a long time at least.
Thats actually the area I would like to work as well. Though at thirty and only having A+ and MCP, in addition to 7 years of real world experience on hardware and software, I don't think I stand much chance.
Unless any one knows something I don't??
Any advice is appreciate
As of now, I want to work in secret research and develop type stuff(whether thats through the military or the private sector I don't know right now), then once I grow tired of that, or whatever, I want to start my own business.
Would doing reserve and/or rotc hurt as compared to co-op/internship(i.e. would co-op/internship be substantionally better than the military experience with what I want to do)?
Thanks for your help so far.
