It’s been almost one year since I started working on my first job after graduating with a Batchelors Degree on Computer Science.
My job requires me to work on E-commerce websites which use salesforce commerce cloud and I don’t like using it , nor do I feel any desire to learn any sort of web development. Everyday I wrap up work feeling like I’m not cut out to be a developer… it feels like I’m stagnating.
Towards the end of my degree I was aware of the fact that my interest in fields like Machine Learning, Data Science, AI and software development were diminishing. I wanted something different, at that time Cybersecurity was the only field that really appealed to me, so I applied for a few jobs and none of them wanted freshers. Since money was tight, I had to find a job and I ended up becoming a web developer.
Right now I’m learning on the side for certifications like CompTIA Security+ (not necessarily for the certificates) in the hopes of landing a job in cybersec. I also have some Linux knowledge, but I doubt it is anywhere near the level required for a professional. I understand that cybersecurity is a broad field, so I’m still figuring out what job roles I should be looking at.
I don’t know if I’m doing the right thing here, perhaps I should also consider jobs like devops too.
Any advice is appreciated.
