U.S. Navy Petty Officer Second Class
13 years served
Seeking a career in information technology
The Colony, TX
I first served as an Aircraft Electrician in the US Navy straight out of High School for 7 plus years. After deploying around the world multiple times with Fleet Air Reconnaissance Squadrons One and Three I then joined the Oklahoma Army National Guard. I originally joined as an Intelligence Analyst, but after volunteering for a deployment to Afghanistan became an Infantryman to facilitate the deployment.
Prior to leaving the Guard I enrolled in Cameron University in Lawton/Ft. Sill Oklahoma and completed a Bachelor of Science in Technology degree with a 3.42 GPA. My wife was then offered a position in Dallas Texas where I began applying and received my first civilian job offer as an Information Technology Specialist with the Dallas Independent School District.
As much as I love working with computers, I still feel a passion for Aircraft and military contracting opportunities. I feel that the structure and organization of these industries is something that I would feel more comfortable being a part of (being more around veterans who would understand me better).
I may not have tons of experience, or qualifications. However what I do have is a passion for learning. I can learn just about anything. I have taught myself programming languages, web design, application use, troubleshooting, etc. I am really looking for a career where I can work and enjoy what I do.
