Most efficient way to get a foothold in starting a career in software engineering/Cyber security?
I joined the military straight after highschool for 5 years since I was a naive teenager; I recently completed my contract (Sonar Technician in the Navy) and got out.
I am adept in Hardware troubleshooting ( i.e. Lockheed Martin and Raytheon consoles/cabinets and electromechanical equipment.)
But I've always had a passion for computer science and tech. But no relatable past work experience to even obtain an internship in the tech industry.
Aside from spending 6 years obtaining a masters in CS/IS before starting a career in the Tech industry, are there any wise recommendations out there?
