Too old at 27? Puhlease...I have socks that old. Seriously though, After spending 21 years in the electronics industry, I was hired at the ripe old age of 45. That was 5 years ago. It was the best thing I have ever done. Of course I worked my ***** off to get where I am. When I went thru our state academy, I told myself going in that I was never going to be last at anything...and I wasn't. Academy was a fantastic experience and I look forward to going to work every day. If you think you're too old, you are. It is all in the attitude and preparation. Go for it, but go for it 100%. They know if you're not giving it your all. Good luck...kid!"You go. We go."
