Ok, my dream is to work for NASA, mainly at the HQ in D.C. in the office of Space Science. Tell me, how hard is it to get a job with NASA? (I wasn't
sure where to post this since im brand new here, I just saw the education thing and stuff so I said what the heck....)
Depends on what skills you have and what you think you want to do. If you want to be an astronaut, the answer is: "almost impossible unless they
start hiring a LOT more astronauts."
If you want to sweep their floors or mow the grass for them, then the answer is "yeah, you could get in with enough experience." Almost anything
else (including security guard) -- it would be useful to have military experience and to have security clearances.
You could also work at the visitor center as a store clerk (and Kennedy Space Center in Florida looks like a fun place to work.)
Applications for positions at NASA are available to the public. Anyone with at least a 4 year degree, or substancial experience in fields pertaining
to NASA's requirements, will have a good chance of getting accepted for employment.
I would submit an application, and see what happens.
