Do you need your degree to land any internships/entry level jobs in cybersecurity?

Im halfway through college and a bit off pace, Ive seen so many things about comp tia certifications and wanted to know If I were to go through those courses and get certified would it benefit me at all? Im dying to get started and hate not being able to jump into my career until im out of college, any ideas? Im dying to work and I have a strong passion for this field.

Yes and no. Certs often get you an interview, but it’s aptitude and ability that’ll really land you the job. (Often, it’s a non-technical HR person that scans through resumes, and is the gate keeper to progress to technical testing or an interview. certs are the only thing they understand.)

If you have no contacts in industry who can vouch for you – get the certs.

If you have friends who can vouch and make the introduction – spend the time on being better at your job.
