Anyone not liking cybersecurity like they used to? I'm feeling burnt out in general, and exit opportunities aren't the best, so I don't know what to do.

Feel the same, kind of just rode the hype getting into Cyber

Yes but maybe not for the same reason as you. I’m in my second year out of UG doing cyber strategy work. I was really hoping to do more than “assess”. I’ve been worried that my hard skills will erode the longer I stay here and pigeonhole me into risk related roles.

Exactly my thoughts and if I’m being honest the GRC work Ive done is boring as hell.

OP what is burning u out? For the most part our projects are pretty lax.

everything from running a SOC to assessments

Depends on how technical you are op. FAANG companies have many roles open for cyber. Just need to find the right fit. If you are technical I know someone who can refer.

Change companies and work for one with a larger scope of work? Tech implementation and security architecture projects are actually pretty neat and all the hype with those big digital transformation projects all big clients seem to be getting into lately

I think I just don't care about cybersecurity like I used to, I've been doing this for 10 years, and to be frank, I'm bored. The initial chaos that was security has died down.

If you want to use your skills/experience and want more chaos/high-paced action, then red-teaming/pentesting may be an option, if you've stayed technical.
