One would call me a generalist system admin. Everyday bouncing back and forth from fire to fire. Knowledge is a mile wide and an inch deep, I’m fed up.
I have a bachelors degree in IT, 3 years help desk, 2.5 years system admin, active security+
I need to move towards an “official” security related role. In my heart, that’s what I want.
My resume paints the picture of a generalist system admin. I’m proud of my wide skill set…. but… is it hurting me when I’m applying to list things that are somewhat irrelevant?
Does anyone have any similar transitions? Should I work on my resume? Work on hack the box? Learn python? Strengthen Linux skills? Study for cissp? None of the above? All of the above? Throw my life savings into crypto?
I’m so confused and burnt out being a generalist system admin.
