Am I in the wrong industry?

I know it might be repetitive question I’m sorry, but I’m dying for a sign to guide me now.

I’ve been learning for more than a year -*which I know it’s not that much*- with alot of ups and downs, but I enjoyed most of it and had real enthusiasm for it. recently I started losing hope of getting a job, almost all of vacancies are recommendation based, I don’t have friends in this field.

I’m practicing on TryHackMe, but sometimes I feel so stupid in some machines, I start questioning myself why I can’t move a leg inside that machine, what will I do in a real-life situation!

On the other hand I can’t afford certificates, it’s too expensive for me where I live, and jobs requires certificates.

Is it okay to feel this? am I in the wrong place?

sorry for the ranting



Yes. CS roles require extensive experience and educational achievements; if you have neither take a look at Help Desk roles, and find an employer who will invest in you.


Welcome to my world. I experience exactly the same here in Germany.
