Hey all, I’m currently a Police Officer with two years experience on the job in a busy area in the Midwest. Before becoming a police officer, I was a corrections officer for 2.5 years.
I’m currently 25 years old and I’ve decided that I don’t see myself being in law enforcement for a career. I began researching IT jobs and information and it seems that most jobs require some sort of experience and / or certs to get a basic low paying help desk job. The same goes with cyber security.
I do not have an IT or cybersecurity degree. The only real world experience I have is from building two gaming PC’s really.
I just started studying for the A+ cert a couple weeks ago and I’m learning the information really fast as most of it is very basic so far (hardware, tools, local networks, IP).
What jobs would be entry level cybersecurity and what certs should I be looking at getting after the A+ to help me land an entry level spot?
Any input is appreciated!
