What I don't understand is how you can avoid programming. I don't want to upset you but how would you dissect an attack if you could not follow code (java, c, etc.)?
Something sounds off in the course work.
As to the job market, it's very tight and at our office we have no need for IT staffers as we are a bunch of programmers. Maybe if we grew in 10x the size we could have someone to run cables or configure a router but that's something we can take care of pretty fast.
Some basic programming skills such as Java is considered mandatory in the circles I run. Beyond that, we expect the folk to be flexible. For example I never coded in Cobol, but I did help others correct their code. My first languages were an assembler long ago and then Fortran. Later I picked up a book on C and then other languages. Keep learning.
Hello everyone. I am hoping someone can give me some insight on where I can proceed to get my career started. I am currently 25 years old. I have an Associates in Computer Networking and Cyber Security, a Bachelors in Technology Management and I am CompTIA Security + Certified.
I am willing to take courses to add to my skills. However, clearly I am doing something wrong or looking in the wrong place for positions. Is there anything that I can explore to get going here. Every month that goes by, although I am always one to push forward and work hard, I cannot lie that it has become depressing.
I am willing to do whatever it takes to be successful. My main interests I would say is anything from Network Security to Computer Networking in general. I am willing to into any sect of this field if it means I can get a start. I have also looked up beginner course on programming.
Any help or advice you are willing to I sincerely appreciate.
