look i know i messed up. i just need serious job advice, not judgement.
Hey Jong... Best case, you're still young, have all your limbs, and maybe got out with an OTH. Life isn't over, just a major change in direction. Lots of responsible living will eventually bury your mistake, but it's going to take some time. IF you have a BCD, then it looks like you're going to have a very hard time getting back into the commercial industry. IF you have a OTH, you can probably, over time, overcome it.
Soooo, you're out, probably intelligent, and you know you can get through NPS and NPTU, which are tough schools. Pick yourself up and go to college. My prototype roommate got out after 6, and put himself through 5 years at Mizzou while working nights at UPS. He has a EE. Go to college, and make yourself valuable
! You might be on the periphery of nuclear power when you try to get back in, and have to take jobs that are less than your qualified for.. But look at the long term. My nephew picked up an underage DUI earlier this year. He satisfied all the court requirements, and is working our outage here. You might have to ease in, work outages as labor, then possibly work into something else, build a dependable reputation!!
People make mistakes... If you pick yourself up, work your ass off, get your degree, and what experience you can, I'd think that down the road you can work back into it.
All of us on these boards have made mistakes, and your's will have sharper consequences. OK, deal, and go on!
Best of luck,
