    This falls under the Always be learning section - mix in non-technical subjects from time to time. Business, history, anthropology, leadership, emotional intelligence, philosophy, and many more... All of these have subjects, topics, and lessons that will serve you well throughout your career.

    I've come back to this thread a few times since it's been posted to make sure I am staying on track.

    Thanks to posts like this and many others on this forum I am making my first jump in my IT career starting next month: from IT Technician to Network Engineer.

    Can't thank you enough for offering your wisdom. Without a community like this I would not be where I am today.

    As a recruiter who works on a ton of .NET Developer, Embedded and other programming positions, the bottom line is, be ready to test. At the end of the day, a good resume may get you in the door, but many employers have you perform an assessment during the interview process. Nail that, and have a good personality, and you WILL get an offer.

    Confirming the US deep south crap. And, it's like that for so many fields. Ugh.

    General IT? You might get by. Cybersecurity or any form of IT security? Haven't seen much within the Deep South. I lived in Deep south for many years and got my Bachelors over there. Neither my past university nor the top state university offered anything relating to IT security/defense. And, they still don't.
    My Bachelors is non-IT/non-STEM. Then I went elsewhere to get an MA that offered a specialization in Cybersecurity Governance/Cyber Policy. I'm fortunate my program offered such a thing, I guess. It took me moving to the East Coast to become more exposed to the disciplines of IT security/cybersecurity. Lots of opportunities as well.

    Anyway, thanks for the advice. I'm just aiming to get something in Information Assurance at the moment...then I'll use certifications to obtain 'pure technical' credentials in this next year or two. I'll see where things go from there
    .
