hi, what does this great community here think about the idea of going into the military in order to break into info. sec.?

i have been trying pretty hard to get out of sys. admin. and into info. sec. - but haven't have much luck on account of my lack of info. sec. specific experience and probably an over flooded market place for IT guys looking to get into info. sec.

I have been entertaining the idea of joining the military in order to get sec. experience and a security clearance. what does everyone think about it?

i was in the military once before, many years ago as a young man. i didn't do too well bacj then. at the time i had a problem with authority, and the army is no place for people with that kind of problem. Wink but i think i might fare better this time - i am a little wiser and more patient.

I served in the Canadian Infantry, and from there in Communications Research. The latter got me my CAT III S/A clearance. It may be your quickest route to getting what you want. The surest trades to get you into IT is one of the tech trades like ATIS Tech.
