I want to pursue a career WAYYYY out of the scope of my college major. (Dance to Cybersecurity) What sort of work or opportunities should I look for?

I have reached a point where I'm about to graduate from college and I have found the need to make a very hard and fast pivot out of the dance industry. I've always had a knack for computers and tech tinkering. I recently stumbled across Cybersecurity and got my CompTIA Security+ certification. What else should I do? Apply for experience? Go to grad school? Just a little stuck looking for suggestions.

What do you do in your major, what is the advantages or disadvantages of your career, and lastly, have you ever regretted your decision of your career and why,... etc.

I'm struggling with choosing my career recently (as a 11th grade student). I have interests in physics, math kind of science. Few considerations are mechanical engineering jobs, architecture, IT/computer science, ...etc. I hope I'll get a respond from those professionals.

Does build pc can be a call a job ???

I'm very passionate about it, but among them, building computers is my favorite because I enjoy handling computer parts. However, I'm worried that nowadays almost anyone can build a computer by themselves and without their assistance, so I'd like to know if building computers is a profession or if there is a company that does it.#Computer #IT

Concerns about Tech....Thoughts?

After reading articles about the Tech Industry, I noticed that many tech professionals are concerned about the job market. Some describe the market as "in a rough place" or "slowing down" due to layoffs from major companies. At the same time, the BLS says that computer and information jobs are expected to grow between 15% and 21%. I'm not sure how to feel about this. Hearing it's growing yet bad confuses me. Does anyone have any thoughts about this? Ultimately, what should people pursuing careers in technology keep in mind? Should they stay or go into something else?

Which steps have you taken in order to become an information security analyst?

I understand that you need to at least have a bachelor's degree for the most part to fill this role, but I'm curious about how you went about furthering your career from the ground up to the career. Did you take another entry level job? Because I understand that a lot of companies require their information security analysts to have 4-5 years of experience in a related field in order to be employed.

What is the best associates degree to get before getting a bachelor's degree in cybersecurity?

Both my younger brother and sister want to earn their associate's degree in cybersecurity, However, I'm concerned that they will be unable to find jobs after graduating with only their associate's degree. I've researched cybersecurity jobs, and discovered that most, if not all require at least a bachelor's degree. They want to work before getting their bachelor's degree so that they can have experience and see if they like the tech industry. Are there other associate's degrees that would have more job opportunities? Also, which computer/IT associate's degree be most compatible with a bachelor's in cybersecurity (i.e. the most credits would transfer/give them a basic foundation of computer knowledge)? Thanks in advance!!!
