I'm new here. Thanks for providing this great resource.
I'm currently in the early stages of a career change into information security. I have three years' experience of helpdesk/network support but I have spent the last three years teaching english abroad.
My BA is irrelevant to IT but I am currently working on my masters in information security. I recently got my network+ cert and will have security+ by the end of the month.
Most of my coursework can be completed online, so I am thinking about starting the job hunt for entry level work after I get my security+. However I am in a position where I can keep my head low and supplement my graduate education with more certifications if that would be helpful.
So what should I do? I understand that education is no substitute for experience but I want to get any certifications that will be helpful for my job hunt. I am particularly interested in the Certified Ethical Hacker exam.
Thanks for taking the time to read this.
