Answer
I sent in my resume and interviewed.

Yes. It was not hard to get a job in 1967; there was a demand for aero engineers. It is harder to get into NASA now.

I am retired. I liked the research and working with brilliant people. I disliked the bureaucracy.

Not sure any more. Do a google search on engineering salaries.

Some stay in research and manage a research team, some go into management.

An engineering degree is required, preferably with a graduate degree.

No special training required other than engineering school, but work experience is a plus.
