A great option for many is a certification, and the perfect industry to enter with certification is cybersecurity. A cybersecurity certificate is also a good option for those who work in the IT field, as a way to expand career goals and even get a promotion.
Keep in mind that even with this possibility, the lack of a college degree does not work well in your favor as far as your cybersecurity career options go.
Just because we can get a job in cyber-security without a degree, doesn’t mean we should avoid pursuing a degree completely. Attending a college security program offers a number of other benefits that are guaranteed to help you at some point in your career moving forward. College programs are usually very good at helping us build up our writing skills and communication ability because they often require written assignments or writing and speech classes. Soft skills like written and verbal communication are highly prized by cybersecurity employers because it’s often a challenge to find an employee that knows technology and can communicate well with customers.
