Forensics is what I was majoring in but I have began to drift away. I live in DC now so I know I would have a GREAT paying job here. However I am moving to NC ASAP and do not think the demand will be as great down there.
I also talked to a guy I know that does CSI type forensics. He said that all the guys he works with at the state department that do digital forensics are miserable and it was not what they were expecting to do.
A lot of the problem is we live in a bigger, faster, now society were people who only use 15 GB worth of HD space feel the need to have a 500GB drive. My wife got me a 250 for Xmas and I took it back. I do not store anything big enough to need anything bigger than 100GB without any clogging.
