I graduated with a bachelors of science in biology but couldn’t find a job with it. I tried getting into medical school but that plan fell short (I didn’t quite have the passion or just the fact I’ve tried for 2 years and just ended up burning my wallet for naught). My first thought was going back for a different degree but was persuaded to just go for 2 more years for a MBA. Unfortunately, I don’t have experience in any managerial position to make very much use of the MBA (I’ve taken jobs that’s mostly in customer service—I’m currently a customer support rep and dread it every day).
My uncle encouraged me to take the CCNA certification since I didn’t want to plow through more years of college and burn a ton of cash. I need a more reliable job before I can go back for another degree. I understand that experience is king but I have little to no experience working in the cyber security/network area. I was hoping to get my CCNA and find a job while I take online classes from WGU to get a cyber security degree. Is it worth taking this certification if I don’t have experience in the field to find a job that’ll help me develop a better resume? How do I go from biology major with a MBA to cyber security? I’m just not sure where to start or the best way to get to my goal. Please, any advice is much appreciated!
