I’m excited to be starting college in January for Cyber Security. My fiance works as a electrical engineer programing and building for a well known company and when I told him that I had decided on Cyber Security (between it and nursing) he was so excited he almost peed his pants!!!

I just have a few questions for those who have been in the field for a bit.

1) How much actual coding is there? I was told by my recruiter none. (I’m not sure I believe that, as the academic advisor put me in Python first thing).

2) What does the actual market look like as far as jobs and long term sustainability? I have read the pay starts about $80-$120k but I’d rather ask someone who is actually in the field and again not rely on the word of a recruiter. Hoping there is some truth to this as homes in Idaho are not cheap 😭😭😭

3) Do you enjoy it? What are the highs and lows in your job?

Thank you so much for your input!
