Reason I decided on this is because in the past the jobs that I have applied for have gotten no either response to my resume or just contacted at all about it.
My resume isn't impressive (one reason why I am waiting) is because I only have my Security+. So most IT jobs want certs and experience. I have an internship for the past yr doing Forensics as well as having a clearance from my time in the Navy. But still no hits, no offers for an interview, nothing.
So until I get the certs I am aiming for i have no reason to apply at any jobs. Is this a bad decision on my part?
I am able to move anywhere within the dop of a hat for a job but nobody is giving me a chance...yet.
Here are the certs I wil l get by October..then I will apply at every job I can find
CEH & CPT(attending the Infosec class in Aug/Sept)
Network+ (should get this one by Aug 101th
CHFI (last one to get)
GCFE have to take the test by Sept 19th
Once I have these I feel I will be better suited to apply at jobs than I currently am now
