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?

Why are you going wide instead of deep? Aws sa professional is a really good cert to have.

That’s a great question haha, I guess it’s because I was looking at the certifications that my company holds highly and trying to achieve those first, the CISSP was the last one they mentioned to me. I like the idea of continuing down the sa professional path though and have more of a specialized area to focus in. I guess it’s better to know something at a deeper level then learning a large gamut of things.

You’re already there with a degree and ur certs - now you just have to dig in apply like a maniac interview like a god and negotiate like a boss and you’ll have a great first role lined up.

Definitely advice going deep in one area, finding a starting role - even as administrator in this area. It will help if you did a project too.
