I’m a recently graduated student (1 year ago) with a college degree. Unfortunately the years I’ve been studying cybersecurity didn’t really have that big of a focus in my country’s education up until the last year of my course.
I finished my studies and I graduated as a sysadmin and I have gotten a job at a very good employer and they have a wide variety of options regarding courses i can take (paid by them!). The current department I work in is like I said a sysadmin-ish job, however I want to develop and grow myself towards the Security Operations Center but I honestly feel like I lack the experience and knowledge to follow said paid cybersec courses and actually pass them. I find cybersecurity really interesting and my passion does not lie within what I currently do (although I don’t mind working what i do right now)
My current department is to be seen as kind of a “development” department. Meaning that people here get hired and eventually work their way up to a different department in the corporation be it Microsoft, Linux, etc
And as I said my goal would be towards the security side but I feel like I’m too stupid to actually get there. When I lurk and read post submissions or comments I’m like “wtf how do you guys come up with this?”…
