Hello, I hope you are doing well! I’ve come here today to ask a few questions about this career as I am quite interested in it as there are many branches you can go into. I will be attending a local college and get my Associate’s in Cybersecurity as that’s all they offer and then transfer to get a BS in Cybersec.
Now the question(s) I would like to ask is, should I get an entry-level job after my Associates as I can later put it on my resume for future jobs. What branch of Cybersecurity do you find the most interesting to actually apply for? I would like to know more as I have done lots of research and am pretty interested in Penetration Testing. But I would like to hear your opinion on the other careers in this field as well to do more research.
What applications should I use to actually learn Pentesting (That’s easy I know nothing on how to actually do it)? I’ve used Python and have done basic coding but I am still learning the basics. Want to get more involved so I have more knowledge going into college.
Lastly, what are some good courses that I should get certifications in to help reinforce my resume for the future? I was thinking of networking for one but I don’t know what else I should take! If you actually sat and read this I appreciate it.
