    Looking into career change at age 51. Been working for school system maintenance for 20 years. Would like facts and opinions if this type of field is for me. Currently grossing about 50k annually. Don’t expect to make that much if I go to school and no experience, but would like to work to that level.
    Do have associates degree in business management thru classes that I took at night so I know that part won’t be an obstacle.
    BTW, I live in the Tampa, Florida area

    Hi, just curious as to whether you know if Canadian citizens who complete their education and training in the US are able to obtain working visas? Is it possible or extremely difficult I. Your opinion. It is hard to find information for my situation, so any insight would be appreciated!

    Hey there! I’ve been interested in becoming a Radiology Technologist for about a year now and will be starting my prerequisites at a community college in winter quarter. My questions to you is regarding education. I live in Seattle and have the options of going to Bellevue College or Pima Institute (both having associate programs in RT). Which is the better choice as far as what an employer is looking for? Which will allow me better opportunities in future advancement? Would getting an education through a public college over a private for profit institute make a difference? Your advice would be much appreciated!
