🇫🇷 "Il y a un avant et un après 24 février. La question de la résilience du pays, en cas de conflit ou de choc majeur, préoccupe les militaires."

👇 Petit #tHREAD de l'interview du ministre des Armées @SebLecornu (@Armees_Gouv) par @Le_Figaro.…
🇫🇷 "Ne sollicitons pas les armées pour compenser certaines défaillances de notre société : quand j’entends [des] maires appeler les militaires à conduire les bus scolaires car nous manquons de conducteurs, c’est perdre de vue le sens profond de la mission initiale du soldat."
"En cas de menace hybride ou de crise, les réserves peuvent jouer un rôle majeur pour permettre aux armées de monter en puissance, y compris en suppléant les militaires d’active appelés à d’autres tâches." @SebLecornu @sarahelhairy @snujemengage

“How to Get a Job in IT/Cyber”

The votes are in!

Out of 128 Votes:
86.7% voted for Home Labs, Blogs & Certs
13.3 % voted for Degree + Certs and that’s it.

Now here are some key takeaways:

#Job #employment #IT #cyber
While having certs, home lab experience and a blog will get you noticed, a degree can be of value due to the following reasons:
1. It required you to show up, work with others, complete work/projects and it develops soft skills that you wouldn’t get working by yourself.
