Is a masters from WGU worth it in my case?

Recently graduated a couple of weeks ago from a well-known university with a B.S. in Computer Science and minor in Cybersecurity. I’m having absolutely no luck even getting an interview (2 interviews out of around 100 applications) and have limited work experience (that’s relevant at least). I figure that I might as well do something productive and get my masters (M.S. in Cybersecurity and Information Assurance) from WGU and some certs while I completely fail at finding a job. Is it worth it in my case? Honestly, even if it isn’t extremely helpful in landing a job, I still wish to pursue it for personal reasons, but it would still be nice to understand how it could benefit me.

Also, I’m leaning towards WGU due to being able to go at my own pace, which I plan on moving fast. Is it feasible to complete this masters in one term while I continue looking for a job? Also, what other similar options are there?
