I’ve seen a lot of people say that it is unlikely you will get the job you want with just an associate’s degree in cybersecurity, and that you’re more likely to get a non-security role and then work your way up.
I’m wondering if that depends on how much you learned in your associate’s degree program. I really feel that my associate’s degree program that I’m finishing up was very detailed and taught me a lot. We did tons of labs in each class and we went above and beyond the material in our class.
I don’t know if associate degrees in cybersecurity are very similar, or if some can be way better to prepare students for the real world than others.
Do employers look at all people with associate’s degrees as the same, or is there a way that you can emphasize that you know your shit pretty well(for someone with just an associates)?
Also, how often do employers actually take a look at the work you’ve done in college? Is it worth putting together all my best lab work and programs to show what I’ve done?
