I was at a conference today and happened to come across a woman who was from the secret service speaking about her career and what they do. The minute I started listening to her I wanted to know more and more about the secret service. What she does on a daily basis seemed to blow away what I am currently doing in finance. It struck a cord with me. I have always been a person that has wanted to join the Marine Corps, but never did it because of, sadly, liking that pay check in finance. Listening to her and her stories, however, really got my blood flowing as something that I could potentially do and LOVE it.
I am wondering if anyone has experience with the secret service as a career path. I am on the job prowl currently and my next firm / company I work for I want it to be for a long term. I "like" finance, but I "love" the potential for money and prestige (all the wrong reasons? Maybe, but I really do LIKE finance, just not love).
Would like to hear some opinions, if anyone has any. I am beginning to believe I better do something I love, as opposed to trying to do something for the money. Plus, saying you work for the secret service has to win you some points, righttt?
