I use everything I learned in school. I Majored in Spanish and got a minor in Political Science. I am now in the law enforcement field at both the state and federal level. My current Group Supervisor was just one year ahead of me at School. We didn't know each other then but we had an immediate connection when he took over our group. Networking is huge in federal law enforcement and every office I visit has a BYU Alum it seems. I use my Spanish daily.
