Diana’s Answer

You could consider a job in cyber security and fight the bad guys (hackers) on the internet. You don't have to have any police/military background, and there are several commercial companies, i.e. Verizon that hire cyber security resources. Several colleges have cyber security programs. I received my Masters Degree from Penn State.

Diana recommends the following next steps:

Talk to a college counselor about their cyber security program
Talk to a professional in the cyber securty field to get a sense of their occupation
