Career Objectives

Currently a full-time apprentice/trainee at Hacking-Lab as a software engineer for one year to finish my current education; I am unsure about my future career choices or paths. My main objective as of right now would be to be a cyber soldier for the Swiss Armed Forces during my, over 300 days, of military service. Getting a federal diploma in cyber security at the end of this service would be a great bonus to seek for a job in the cyber security industry.
