Networking and endpoint/server troubleshooting try to be part of technical support or NOC "Network Operation Center" then move your way up into deployment of networking & servers equipment then security devices like "NGFW, IPS, WAF, DAM, DLP, Encryption" .. remember getting all basic and foundation right will help you a lot in being advanced in security later on.

I agree with Haider. Almost any type of technical IT experience is useful and may allow you to begin to build your connections into a corporation's cybersecurity organization. Cybersecurity impacts every component of IT, so almost any technical job in IT can give you valuable experience that will be useful when you complete your graduate program.
