I guess the good thing for people who had zero experience before, if you go the (military at least) government route you're essentially getting paid to learn how to make a living when you separate.
Pretty much anyone and everyone with public facing web portals handling sensitive information is hiring in cybersecurity. You have everything from big companies (Apple, Intel Security, Kaspersky) to non-tech companies (utility companies, retailers, political campaigns) hiring some form of cybersecurity personnel.
