This a comment from a thread...is there any validity to this? Before I gamble my entire life on a new career?
Many many thanks...
"Now my opinion about the UXO T1 position overall. The UXO T1 field is strangling itself to a slow death. While the schools are good, there are TOO MANY of them and they are pumping out way too many UXO Tech 1's. The UXO Database now has over 3000 names on it...75% (or more) are UXO Tech 1 school grads. I would guess that 75% of them are unemployed.
These schools cannot guarantee anything other than the fact they will cash your tuition check and you will get trained.
If they promise you placement, I can assure you they have broken their promise before the check clears.
If you do not know someone in the UXO field who can "get you in", already work for a company which does UXO work, or have some other way in without relying on a school for placement....deliver pizza instead. "
