Hello, everybody -

I am a young Air Force officer considering a career change.  I'm
looking for a high-paying, high-responsibility position doing
intellectually challenging work in a company that values creativity,
leadership, and initiative.  It is imperative that this company give
high performers the opportunity to advance quickly.  It would be great
if this position allowed me to relocate to New York City and included
some international travel.

I would like a list of specific companies that match most or all of
the criteria above and are worth my investigating further.  Please
include a rough sketch of the company and/or work involved.  I am
already aware of and have submitted my resume to Goldman Sachs and

- B.S. in Computer Science, United States Air Force Academy, top 15% of class
- Conversationally fluent in Mandarin Chinese
- Holder of a current TS/SCI security clearance
- Intelligence background  


There is no answer at this time.
