Advice on where to start as someone with aspirations in CS starting with no
i’m looking for recommendations on viable certifications to start an entry level job making my way towards cyber security. i’ve been reading up and most people here say getting a job with no degree will probably require some experience working simple IT or even what people refer to as helpdesk. so i’m wondering if anyone could give me any specific advice on a smart direction to start either with finding any sort of IT or helpdesk job to advance my knowledge and career. it almost sounds like people are saying go get any customer service job at xfinity but i feel as thought blindly moving to an over the phone help desk at any company would be a bit naive. Would it be better to just get some decent certifications myself i.e Sec+, CySA+, Net+. and if so which certifications would be the most important to start with. i’m not opposed to getting a full degree in computer science or whatever direction would ultimately be required for the most gainful employment, but i’d like to start making steps immediately that don’t involve enrolling in college.
