Too Old Too?
Hi. I'm 54 yrs. old, am now 2 & 1/2 yrs. into my forensic science degree program [will graduate soon with an A.A. & A.S., then on toward my B.S.]. Lately I've been scanning 4 yr. universities & colleges, and from what I can see, it will take me another 2 yrs. minimum, 3 yrs. probably, to finish my B.S. degree in Forensic Science. Some of my employment history: I've been a firefighter [almost 9 yrs.; career ended, hurt on the job], worked at a state prison [almost 3 yrs.], worked as a civilian cop on an Air Force Base, worked as a management supervisor for a property management company for 7 yrs.. Will employers look at me as being too old to enter the field of Forensic Science, either as a CSI or a laboratory technician? Or, would they look at my employment history & see useful elements from my previous jobs, and my maturity as being assets for them? I'd appreciate some feedback. Thanks a lot.
