I have been working in Endpoint security in a SOC for about 2.5 years now. I’ve been meaning to switch from operations to a more managerial and a non-shift oriented role and just grow in cyber security and get started on my journey as a solution architect (get paid more!).
I really need advice on how to break into this role and just have a solid career ahead.
I have experience in AV, EDR, HIPS, CASB, Cloud security etc. I have CEH and will be soon appearing for an exam for DLP certification as well.
I’ve been having trouble on mapping what I should do and what skills I should learn before applying to jobs. I have also found myself applying to jobs left, right and center, not fully understanding what exactly would be required even if I do get called for an interview. Mentally I feel very stuck and desperate as WFH might end and I may have to move back to my work location. My priority is to find a equally good and challenging job in my current location. Just don’t know what and where I should start.
All insights are welcome :)
