Hi guys I need some help on this one.
I am asking this for a friend of mine who is considering a career change and looking into cyber security degrees/paths. He has been told its pretty easy to get in and make good money. However this was advised by a CC Advisor.
Zero IT/Helpdesk/Technology Experience of Any Kind. (Cannot assemble a computer)
4 Year Degree in Bible
25 Years Old
I am reading up on how to help advise him. I am under the impression that while cyber security is an awesome field, with many incredible paying paths, nearly all of them need a large amount of experience in technology related fields. He is expecting to make 50-60k out of school with a 2 year degree in "cyber security" alone. (Massachusetts)
Please advise and add thoughts. I am hoping to help direct him, either to encourage or shine a light on this potential career change.
He is a good friend, and I want whats best for him. I know literally nothing about this field and its many facets which is why I am coming to the source.
