Noob here trying to get into Cybersecurity.
About a year ago I decided to change gears and start a new career in Cybersecurity. Previous to that I was in the retail biz for 15 years. I told myself I would start grinding from the bottom and learn the basics and get in anything related to tech to get my feet wet. Got my A+ and got a job as a PC technician. I was initially planning on following up with Network+, but a few months later I got the opportunity to join a Cybersecurity Bootcamp through a University taught by Trilogy. I definitely learned a ton that I believe it would have taken me longer to do so otherwise. Since then I have been dabbing into THM and currently halfway through my Security+ studies. As I keep looking at jobs, I definitely don’t see any entry-level Cybersecurity jobs. From the posts I have seen on here, most of us want to jump into Red team jobs but from what I can tell those jobs are rare and require a great deal of knowledge. Blue team jobs on the other hand seem to be a bit more abundant.
To the professionals already in the game. Should we be bothering with looking for “Entry-Level Cybersecurity” Jobs after getting the Security+? Or should we be looking for SOC jobs? Or maybe none of those and enter through other ways. I know there is not a right answer for this but I want to hear your opinions. Am I aiming a bit high too soon?
Thank you for your time in advance!
EDIT: sorry for the crappy title
