    Is my career plan sound?

    Why wait to finish your CTI? You need to meet one of the two following requirements to get hired. 3 years of general work experience or Have a Bachelors Degree. Assuming you have 3 years of work experience. You should apply now and continue working on your CTI while you play the waiting game.
