Well you all know how the job search has gotten me down. No one in the security field will even contact me in response to my resume. But, I can’t believe that these certifications mean nothing! I have 25 years’ experience (lots of starts and stops, thank you Bipolar Disorder) but still I do have the experience in the IT field. So, I thought, maybe I should shoot for an entry-level Systems Engineer job, because Systems Engineers become Security Engineers! I mean, I have to be strategic here and play the long game. So, today I have been applying for every single entry-level Systems Engineer job I can find. Maybe I will have a better shot at getting a response. I don’t know. But I can’t just give up and go back to my old field. I didn’t work so hard these past few months on these certifications just to go back to Desktop Support. There HAS to be a way forward!!!!!
“Believe” is my faith word and it is what has gotten me through many a hard time. Believe things can be better. Believe you can get through this. Believe you can rise above. I have to Believe. Bipolar Disorder doesn’t have me beaten.
P.S. – I put this “BELIEVE” sign in every room of my house to remind me 🙂
