    Hey guys, my 31 yr old son is finally coming home from Navy active duty. He earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Communications. Would any of you help him secure a job? He is a good boy. Thanks.

      As long as his résumé is available he should be fine. There's a shortage of IT workers. Many job postings!
