Which cert builds imminent technical skills that u actually learn and can assist in landing a job or doing well in an interview because this COMPTIA SEC+AND AWS CCP isn’t helping as of yet. Also what’s a basic tool set you should know for cyber security and somewhere to lab these things ?



OSCP would be your best bet then.

Sec+ and ccp are what get you in the door. Id say expect 99% of certs will get your resume past HR, from there it comes down to your history. You have to have more practical knowledge to nail the interview and be willing to learn more than what is in the cert. Certs are made to be generic and cannot go into the depth you need in a job.

OSCP is a very practical hands on technical cert but it’s all offensive security which is important to know in most positions cause your try to protect against hackers.


I think it depends on what you want to do within cyber security. If you want to red team then yeah OSCP but there’s heaps less jobs doing that. Blue team has heaps more opportunities.
Everybody does Sec+ no wonder it does nothing. HR should like it but most people I know don’t really rate multiple choice questions on industry terms.

So yeah what do you want to do?
