I recently graduated college last year and am trying to pursue certifications to help build up my resume. I currently hold an AWS SAA certification and Azure AZ -900. I am looking to try and obtain the CISSP next. Is there something else I should start with before diving into CISSP or should I direct my studying and focus in that direction?

How much would my starting salary be now that I have CISSP, CISA, CISM, Security+, CEH, GSEC, SSCP, and GCIH. I did all this at home because since I don’t have a bachelors degree in Cyber (I have it in Biology), and Masters are pretty expensive… any advice about what position or salary I could get? I don’t have any experience but I’m clearly quite prepared to take on any challenges…

Ive started working early and never went the college route, so I don’t have a bachelors degree or equivalent - I don’t even have a college certificate. I’m currently CISSP certified and have about 4 years exp in Big4, 9 in IT in general.
Career wise, I have no issues getting offers and it’s going really well.
