My friend just got hired as some kind of Security checking vehicles in the gate. He says I'm a very good candidate because of my military background and he can talk to the hiring manager for me. The pay is really good, the only problem is that I will be getting my degree in Business Accounting next May and this job has nothing to do with Business. If I get hired, can I easily move into the Finance Dept of LM even though I don't have any Accounting experience? Should I instead try to get a business internship with them and hope to get hired?

I am in the Orange County area of CA and realize that I would have to move to San Diego or Northern California to work in the Finance Dept.

Get something in your area; security isn't going to help you get a job with anything related. Palmdale also has accounting folks.
