    No matter how many skills you have. The hardest part is passing the FBI Pre Employment polygraph. Less than 30 percent get through it......and it is not just as easy as telling the truth. They use that tool to weed out those who qualify that they don't want.

      Yeah, I'm trying to hit as many as I can, I'm trying to start learning more languages, though this is tough and the non-english alphabet ones are supposedly the hardest to learn.

      I think I had a speeding ticket once when I was 18. Other than that, its clean. No debt, pay bills on time. No pot use.

        -Military experience (preferably Combat Arms or Special Operations)
        -Priority foreign language such as Chinese or Arabic
        I am working on getting my CCNA (precursor to CCNP), my employer has a professional development budget.

        Would the best MOS be Infantry? Would MP be a good substitute? As well, what about completing OCS?
        I am currently learning German (I took German in high school and it would be easier to relearn/become fluent). Also planning on learning a second foreign language after.

                One of the clowns from my SOCS class took the FBI polygraph. This moron decided to use counter-measures and failed in an epic fashion.

                  It's nothing but a crap shoot. Honest, lie, use or don't use countermeasures...it's anyones guess what the outcome will be.
