To be very honest, I had no formal knowledge of cybersecurity or the initial grasp on how deep and far this program expands when it comes to knowing, doing, and exploring different avenues of the subject. But one thing is for sure, I had an absolute blast taking this bootcamp, and would recommend it to anyone looking to start a fresh path to a new career or job. I’m super impressed with career services, as they really have helped me with resume building, exploring the job market, and giving good advice when looking for opportunities.
