How One Former Military Officer Used His Love Of Language To Explore A New Career Path

While most people may be looking to go back to school at some point, many have a hard time committing to it. For some, it’s the very real concern of not having enough time in the day or choosing the right program to study. For others, it's a matter of balancing classes in an online format with the responsibilities of starting a new family.

As a former officer with the Air Force, Bailey knew the value of broadening one’s horizons. He capitalized on this during his military service by specializing in linguistics. Bailey’s path back then involved him learning a few different languages, which he says opened his eyes to how he absorbed information.
