Starting a career in network security

Tasi305
Hey guys i would like you to help me with some advice. I am still studying towards my degree (information systems) and doing it part time but i am thinking of kick- starting my career already. I have a great interest in Network Security so i was thinking of doing A+,N+ and maybe Security+, do you guys think i am doing the right thing? What other courses/ certifications can i consider ? I would also like to know if its possible to lend an entry-level job with a degree yet to be finished? I would appreciate any kind of advice and thoughts. Thank you.

    If you are interested in networking, the main certification to consider is Cisco, and for security it's CISSP. CompTIA stuff is a good starting point, and if you're just learning, you may not be not be ready for the CISSP, but Cisco has some entry-level certifications to consider....CCENT, CCT.

    In terms of certifications, look online at sites like Monster or Indeed for what you would see as your 'ideal job' and look at what certs that are listed as must-haves.

    "Entry level Cisco Certifications begins either with CCENT as an interim step to Associate level, or a Cisco Certified Technician (CCT) certification. With a CCENT, a network professional demonstrates the skills required for entry-level network support positions - the starting point for many successful careers in networking. Cisco Certified Technicians have the skills to diagnose, restore, repair and replace critical Cisco networking and system devices at customer sites.

    Both certifications serve as starting points for individuals interested in entering a career in network technologies. "
