I am incredibly new when it comes to cyber security. I have a very general idea about it and my interest in it piqued this past week when my friend told me the amount of money that can be made. I’ve done some light digging and found that jobs pay higher for experience versus having the certification. My friend relayed some information to me about getting the Comtia+ course and I’m about to click “Buy Now” on Amazon and start this journey.
My question is this: What do I need to focus on? Are there certifications that carry more weight than other? I don’t have a college degree, I stopped college after a year, does this matter? Does the industry favor credentials?
