Good skills and education...why not try? Are you at NAVAIR in your civ job?I was wondering if I should even bother applying right now. I’m 27 YO with two years experience as a civilian mechanical engineer for the Navy and a half year of project management at a civil engineering company. I’m still early in my career. I have a bachelors in mechanical engineering and a masters in systems engineering with roughly 3.3 GPAs in both. I’m also currently working on a masters in computer science because work is paying for it and I enjoy the subject matter.
