I’ve been out of the Army for about 4 years now. I’ve been trying to get into the Cyber Security industry. I’d like to make connections with anyone who is willing to advise me in that direction.
Elizabeth, thank you for your service. I live in Dallas and would like to assist you in connecting in your industry. Do you want to stay in Anna? There should be a lot of the jobs in cyber security in the DFW area. I can electronically introduce you to people I am connected with at the Workforce Coalition of Greater Dallas. They should be able to identify specific companies in your field. Connect with me via email@example.com or 214-693-7689.
The nuclear industry is usually hiring cyber security professionals. If you are in The great state of Texas, you have 2 plants nearby - Comanche Peak and South Texas Project.
There may be Corporate jobs available as well. Look at the websites for the utilities- you may find a great paying job close to home.

In addition to these articles, I'd recommend heading over to our Community Page and reaching out to individual Advisors with experience in the IT/Cybersecurity space. You can narrow down the search to those career areas using the drop-down menu, and send personalized messages to Advisors you'd like to engage with.
I hope this is helpful!
All the best,
