A little money now may still be a "little" money twenty years from now. Finishing school is going to mean "big" money for the rest of your life.
That is exactly the point. Without a degree you will have a hard time to advance. This job is at the same lavel as flipping hamburgers at McDo - only sounds a bit fancier.

I've worked in large labs here and in the US most of my life and been involved in research and recruiting research and support staff. Unless you are starving I suggest you finish your degree as a priority.
If they want to give you some part time work which doesn't interfere with your studies then I would think that was fine.

strollin IDK if this helps but it was a Kforce recruiter. I think you might be on to something. During the phone conversation I had today the recruiter failed to mention what exactly the job really was, and keep saying I was a really good fit for the position, nor did he mention the name of the company who is hiring... I emailed him after the phone to setup an interview, but have not heard back yet.

Sounds shady I know, I do not plan on signing any contract until I have all the facts.

The finish school then go to work theme is very popular. I want to go to work because I think its the best environment to learn about computers. Another reason why I want to go to work is, out of the last 5 years I have been unemployed for 2.5 years and not working sucks... I'd like to have healthcare and a steady pay check. As far as paying for school, I am on the GI Bill so that part is taken care of.

You can work and go to school at the same time. I worked full time during the day then was a full-time student at night. Took me about 5 1/2 years but I finished school while supporting a wife the whole time. Can't recommend it for everyone but it worked for me. The point is, follow through and complete school.

Good choice cokane!
Now hit the books and finish your education. While doing this make sure you keep your
feet in the water to see what else is out there.
Best of luck,

EMC just emailed me about their Leadership Engineering Accelerated Program (LEAP) program. Apparently I have been submitted for an internship, which is cool because EMC is a legit place.
