    You can enter employment with a Bachelors degree in computer technology, but I believe you would be more marketable if you were enrolled in a Masters program with the same focus. Your personal background will be seriously scrutinized, including you school grades. Perhaps you can find an available position in a company that is involved in computer security, in an entry level position. Don’t be patronizing, be honest, and use the opportunity to influence your superior manager by being dependable, capable, and knowledgeable. If you need help, ask for it. But use your spare time to continue your education. It is very valuable.
    and with sincerity, dependability, and the continued value of your contribution
