Hello, I'm new to this site and found it while doing a search for info. I am currently in the USAF and will be retiring soon. I have been accepted to and I'm currently working towards my degree in Pete Engineering. But I will be 46 years old when I enter the job market. With oil prices hitting the lows they are and hearing about new grads having issues getting jobs I am wondering if I should changing fields. I have 20 years experience in aviation maintenance and worked 4 of those years in a job along side engineers. So I know this is a field I want to enter. But I'm just concerned about the job prospects after graduation. Any advice anyone is willing to give would be great! My second choice is Electrical Engineering. I appreciate any and all help!
