Hey everyone, I know you probably see this question/topic often but I’ve been thinking of doing a possible career change to cyber security from psychical security which I’ve been in for a few years now. I don’t have any degree in cyber security or computer science and I just paid off my student loans last year for my associates degree so going back into debt would suck but if I had to I would.
I’m pretty technically and mechanically inclined but I don’t have much experience within the cyber world. I’ve started reading Mike Meyers’ CompTIA A+, Security+ and Network+ books, starting with CompTIA A+.
As someone who wants to change career fields, what are some things I should be doing to get my foot in the door? Where would you advise someone new to start?
It would suck to have to start at the bottom of a new career field cause I’m making decent money where I’m at but I really want and need a career change.
Any and all advice and insight would be appreciated!
