He's looking into becoming an agent, not a desk worker, so not sure if that's the same thing?
 I really feel for him because I did the same thing with schooling: degree for fun. He doesn't want to do biology stuff as a career. His only job experience is with the Army, his "cashier" job with that college savings fun company wouldn't really count for anything as he wasn't even there for a year. Plus he really does not want to do anything like that again, it was just to pay the bills.
