I’m in the 2nd year of computer engineering and I want to pursue cyber security. I have professor who has worked for a while with the military and he has many contacts from those days and said it helped kickstart his career and meet a lot of people. He said it let him work with brand new technology at the time in my country that very few people knew how to use.
I asked him if it was worth it to join the military to progress in this field but he said no. Didn’t explain why.
What do you think? I’ve been considering it for after I finish my Msc in a few years.
