    cyber security is a day to day activity that involves *Hoodyhacker* on IG. A very special talent indeed.

    I am attending San Diego State’s Cyber-Security Bootcamp and am wondering if you think it will be difficult to find a job in San Diego?

  13. Marcus Austin on March 12, 2021 at 11:17 pm

    That’s funny you mention passing Security+… I have that and CySA+, and I am not seeing any movement. If you want to get into Security, you should look at getting the CISSP. The entry level positions that only require Sec+, also EXPECT you to have a TS/SCI sometimes with a poly. The shortage in this field has been furthered by the employers who won’t give new employees without experience a chance, not for a lack of people with skills…

    This is so helpful! I’m about 3 weeks away from graduating my cyber security boot camp, and I feel like I am overwhelmed with all the directions I can go… the cyber security analyst sounds like a nice place to start and build a better foundation!

  16. AG0943 on March 12, 2021 at 11:19 pm

    I want to change careers and possibly go back to school and get a masters in cybersecurity. Currently I am in community health. Thanks

    Can you get into these with certificates or degree only?

  28. Te’ Douglas on March 12, 2021 at 11:31 pm

    Penetration tester is white hat hacker right

  29. VinnyMartello on March 12, 2021 at 11:31 pm

  30. Chrisceil Caballero on March 12, 2021 at 11:32 pm

    I am transitioning from Healthcare to Cybersecurity. Currently enrolled in Harvard Vpal. Hopefully I will be able to get a job after I complete the certification. I need some guidance.

    I’m a graduate of civil engineering in Nigeria but I’m in USA now and I’ve always loved cyber security and IT but didn’t wanted to study it Nigeria. How can I start now I’m in USA. Please I need directions how I can start..

  32. Quinn Andrews on March 12, 2021 at 11:35 pm

    Do you need to get the core certs before one of the cyber certs?

    My friend thanks for the info. I need your help and your point of view and advice. My field is hotel and restaurant management. I am not familiar with IT or Cyber security. There’s a program in Cal state long Beach CA. And they’re offering to enjoy the program even though I have none experience in the field. I am very interested but Do you think I can make it to entry level? Or do I need a background experience (IT)? Please LMK what you think. Thanks man

  37. Beau Church on March 12, 2021 at 11:39 pm

    Is it possible to get a job in cybersecurity with a cybersecurity certificate & no prior experience in IT ?

  38. Collin Cole on March 12, 2021 at 11:41 pm

    Ok so I’m in school right now to get my bachelor’s degree for cyber security is it honestly worth the money to continue you school (it’s my first year) or should I just look at getting certificates to learn and get certified…. Thank you

  39. sharpemang on March 12, 2021 at 11:45 pm

    He said he’s getting inquires for just getting security+? Everyone has security+ so I suspect he’s lying

  40. Hasnain Abid Khanzada on March 12, 2021 at 11:45 pm

    I guess it’s all about: Skills => Experience => Certification => InfoSec Job

  41. Tyler McMahon on March 12, 2021 at 11:48 pm

    I have an associates degree in digital forensics. How do I get into cyber security?

  42. henrywm on March 12, 2021 at 11:52 pm

    I am in school for cybersecurity. I received A+ and Security+ last year. I participate in National Cyber League. I also network with people on LinkedIn and Zoom calls. I am in a good region for cybersecurity work (near Atlanta, GA), but I am still looking for work. I received Network+ this week, and so I expect that will help. What else do you suggest?

  43. 3dAdan09 Jadan47091 on March 12, 2021 at 11:53 pm

    Can you self teach yourself any of these roles somewhat like web/software development or do you need a degree?

  44. Black Flame on March 12, 2021 at 11:54 pm

    I feel like Cyber Security is a very trendy word (and field) right now, but few people understand what it really takes to be a competent, valuable, high-paid cyber security professional. The breadth of knowledge and technical skills is being underestimated in most published material about the field. Most cybersecurity professionals I know who are successful in their mid to late 20s are literally top notch computer science graduates. They are the nerdiest of nerds. Smart kids who are excellent at logic and mostly excellent at math. My friend is a cyber security consultant at a large firm who had a 4.0 GPA in HS and College and graduated summa cum laude in his comp sci program. He’s 25 and earns around $170K, drives a Tesla, has a house, all of that… He was a top student. Most people I know aren’t cut out for that level of rigorous academic achievement, nor are they smart enough (incl myself).

    It’s not as easy as just taking a few free online courses and magically passing two or three cert exams. It’s very detailed, thorough, technical stuff that some people would claim is boring to sit there and read about for months and even years on end before getting to practice. The material itself is difficult and arduous to master. Maybe I’m wrong here… but it’s not for everyone. I feel like firms only hire the best of computer science/engineering students.

  45. Benoit Kabwar on March 12, 2021 at 11:56 pm

    Hi, I am currently in college. Computer science major and I found interest to change my major to IT, because I would like to do a career in Cyber Security. To be honest, I don’t feel like I took classes so far that can help me in that field. Can I get some suggestions on how I should start from scratch? Like classes I should take and stuff like that. Penetration tester sounds very interesting.

  46. Harish Sharma on March 12, 2021 at 11:58 pm

    Is this necessary to learn programming language before going in cyber security?

  47. umer on March 12, 2021 at 11:58 pm

    Iam doing my best to get into IT bro. Stay blessed. I worked hard to pay for and get me thru school. Now finally got my degree few months ago and cannot wait to start new real job and career. I’m looking for a good website like monster to find a job please let me know if u know any more sites! Also any other certs u recommend?
