Starting a career in IT (Breaking into the field)
For a while I have been looking at a career in IT, but cant decide which route I want to take in order to get there.
I want to become a Cyber Security Analyst, but I understand, that wont happen over night.
I have been looking at all sorts, ranging from University to traineeship companies, but I’m unsure whether the debt is worth it, and tbh, I really don’t trust some of the traineeship companies due to some negative reviews I’ve found (Better safe than sorry I guess??).
I started looking at going straight to doing something like CompTIA A+ and looking for jobs as a helpdesk technician once I completed it, and gaining experience whilst doing other certifications in the mean time, but I cant find many helpdesk technician jobs around.
If anyone has any ideas or thoughts about where best to start my career in IT (I have no notable experience or qualifications with direct regard to IT btw) I would be grateful!
