I have over 25 years in the military, working on my masters in cyber, and maintain several IT certifications. Is there anything else I need to be working on to get a similar job with similar pay?
I am trying to align my skills with the current IT civilian job market. information-technology-and-services
Thank you for your service to our country. So honestly, you are more (if not overqualified!) than ready to transition to civilian sector. Honestly, the masters in cybersecurity is probably icing on the cake. I'd recommend go ahead and apply for mid-career and higher level positions.
This is not a space I'm familiar with. But I did come across this fantastic resource that might be helpful: https://www.shift.org/ . They specialize in working with military members looking to transition into high impact civilian jobs. Primarily they focus on matching employers to military job seekers. But they also have useful resources on the transition and job searching process in general.
I think experience counts for a lot. My resume details project work and how I applied technical concepts to it. During the interview processes, your potential will show if you are able to speak to the experience.
