How to get a Cyber Security job


Cyber Security is a booming field, but it can be difficult to break into. Cyber Security salaries are great right now. If you’re looking for a Cyber Security job, here are some tips:

Look for jobs with “entry-level” in the title.

As you search for jobs, look for the term “entry level” in the title or description of a position. This will let you know that the company is looking for people with little to no experience.

You can get a Cyber Security job, but it may take some extra hustle and creativity

The first step is to be proactive about your search. Don’t expect to find a job if you’re not looking for one! You need to keep an eye out for openings and reach out when they come up, even if they aren’t exactly what you want at first glance (but are still related). If you don’t see any good opportunities on LinkedIn or Monster or other sites like that, try searching for companies in your area directly–you never know where someone might post something interesting!

It’s also important not to give up when things don’t go according to plan; sometimes the right opportunity will come along when least expected (and sometimes when most expected). Just remember: if someone says “no” today doesn’t mean they won’t say “yes” tomorrow (or next week).

If a company won’t hire you, ask if they’ll mentor you – even if it’s for free.

I know what you’re thinking: “A mentor? But I don’t need a mentor.” And yes, maybe that’s true now. But it’s better to have someone who can help guide your career than not have one at all (or worse yet – end up with the wrong one). A good mentor knows how the market works and can help with everything from resume writing to interview prep to finding jobs in their network when they’re not hiring themselves!

Get real-world experience – even if it means starting your own business.

One of the best ways to get real-world experience is by starting a business. While it may be tempting to just jump into the workforce, there are many benefits to starting your own side project or freelance business first:

  • You’ll learn how to run a company and gain valuable insight into what works and doesn’t work when it comes to running an organization.
  • You’ll have more control over your schedule and workload than you would if you were working for someone else (and potentially earn more money).
  • It’s easier than ever before–thanks largely in part thanks technology–to turn an idea into reality; there are even free resources available online if all else fails!

Use Twitter to network and find jobs.

Twitter is a great way to connect with people in the industry, find out what’s trending and get a feel for what it’s like working as a cyber security professional. You can also use hashtags to search for jobs that are relevant to your background.

Keep improving your skills

Look for Cyber Security or Computer Security training online. Sites like and are great places to learn skills that can land you that job you are looking for.

Get a Certification

Look into the Securty+ Certification from CompTIA. This is a great entry level certification and will give you the foundation needed to look for more challenging opportunities.

Most importantly, sign up for job alerts!

Sign up for job alerts. Job alerts are a great way to keep up with the latest opportunities in your field and make sure you don’t miss out on any opportunities. This is especially true if you’re looking for cyber security jobs, since there are so many of them out there!

To set up a job alert:

  • Go to or and search for “Cyber Security Jobs” in your area (or wherever else you want). You can also search by state/city/zipcode if you want more targeted results that way too!
  • Click on “Create Job Alert” at the bottom right corner of any job listing page


If you’re passionate about Cyber Security, don’t let these challenges stop you from pursuing a job in the field. Cyber Security is an exciting and rewarding career path that can lead to many different opportunities. One thing is certain: if you want to get hired, you will have to work hard at it! But if you keep hustling and keep your eye on what matters most—your passion for this industry—you’ll find success sooner than expected.
