Systems Analyst in Huntsville:
"Good Career Choice."
Anything in technology is a good career option. At first, I did not understand that a bachelors degree really prepared me for the professional world. It isn't what I learned in college so much as how to think. In tech, you must know how to think logically, and break tasks into smaller tasks. I never used COBOL in the real world, but the logic that goes behind it was very helpful in learning new languages. I now write MATLAB code to generate statistics for complex systems.
