In the wake of the Colonial Pipeline hack, the news is filled with stories about the huge number of cyber security jobs going unfilled. As I’m currently in the job market, those stories have commanded my attention.
I have a bachelor’s in computer science, and master’s in management information systems. Neither degree covered cyber security to any great extent. I also have about 10 years experience in software development, mostly web-based applications.
Could I parlay my current experience into an entry-level cyber security job? Would any employers hire me in an on-the-job-training capacity? Would i need to earn a cyber security certificate to be considered for a cyber security job?
