This might be in the wrong place and if so it's my fault.
In High School a while back I was told with an Army Career I could easily get a job with Cisco. I was wondering however what certifications I should acquire before being hired. Currently I'm working on Security + but I was wondering what cisco side certs to work on. I'm mainly interested in Security, I love it like no other and I live not to far from a Data Center in Texas. My MOS is 25B IT specialist. I know I probably wont be able to get CCIE but I know I can get something to get on my feet and be able to do something within Cisco.
I have a love for computers and if I love something I would like to keep it safe.
Thank you for any help you may provide,
