Well, to inject a little honesty here....
I'm basically a desk guy...manager type, just a few weeks away from my MBA...woo hoo!
Growing up as a military brat and later as a defense contractor brat, I always wanted to go into the intel field, and my hobby was often researching
all about different intel agencies. After high school, I actually got into a CIA training program, but alas, it got cancelled only about 6 weeks in.
Shame really, it wasn't easy tracking down the recruiter in the first place. (and I scored really well on the Entrance Exam....which is basically
Allen Dulles for every question, lol)
Needless to say though, I took it as a sign at the time, and my illusion of what it would be like was extinguished, and I opted for a more realistic
career path (well, I say career, but really, I just needed a job)...so I'd work for someplace for a few yrs until something better came along (or
recently, getting downsized), and go on to the next.
Went back to school later on, to basically better myself, get better jobs, and eventually hope to teach at the collegiate level.
