I just recently started listening to the podcast as I’m only now discovering the infosec field, so first off, I’d like to say thank you for making this resource freely available.
Now for my question; I am an incoming college freshman (Computer Science) and am at a sort of crossroads. If I wanted to put myself in the best possible position for a successful career in the infosec field, is the military a viable option? I have the option of joining ROTC in school, and I would have to commit to this if I decided to peruse that path. My long term goal would be to work for an intelligence agency in the federal government.
If I was to leave the military or not pursue federal work, do most private companies hire employees with active duty military experience?
Or would remaining a civilian throughout school present me with more opportunities?
The answer is absolutely. Active duty military is a plus when getting hired. I would suggest finding a profession that you like and can enjoy such as intelligence, networking, or information security jobs inside the service. I for one wouldn’t be where I am today without the help of being in the military. Gave me the focus, experience, and opportunity to break through in the private sector.
