I am a debt adviser by trade, am used to deal with people and their issues, not sure if I will get bored staring at codes all day... can anyone share if they have found this career choice a negative one, and if so, why?

In this day and age of almost mandatory Remote and Virtual Learning for our K-12 students, what is your insight regarding assisting children with adjusting to this new "normal"l?

Where would you start to get into Cybersecurity from a different career field?
Michele Gadson
01:20:48
Thank you for your answers; these are really great suggestions! I have a Junior in high school, who is doing well in his academics; remote learning is really effective for him. I have one more question regarding Cybersecurity. For someone who is not former Military, how does one with the advanced technical education without Security Clearance make a successful foray into the profession?
Michelle Ward

Look for internships or co-ops with the various government agencies like DHS which is here in Pensacola.

What are the TOP certificates? Which certs should be start with?
Rachel Ley
01:23:52
There are really SO many. I went with things affiliated with colleges because, again, when there are so many choices you can't be sure they're all legitimate. PSC has some amazing certs in terms of Cybersecurity, web development, and product management.

Security+ is one of the certificates often required for cybersecurity jobs. I have a CISSP, but it requires 5 years of experience as well.
