Feel like I’m stuck, where to continue?

I recently graduated with a BS in computer science. I’m looking for entry level jobs everywhere I can. I want to get on the defensive side of Cyber Security. Now that I’ve graduated I feel lost as to where to start or to look. Looking to eventually get to be an Cyber Security engineer, architect…etc. What can I do to further education(besides, things like tryhackme, cybrary).

Get in with a helpdesk position first and move from SysAdmin to cyber

Or go the dev/etl route

I normally recommend cybrary but their structure has changed, so there’s less available for free. The other CTFs are a good start.

For jobs, keep an eye on USAjobs.gov. While the pay might be lower(GS-7 is around $50k/year), you can get into a cyber security position with just the degree and promotions come pretty easily every year
