Hello fellow members,
I’ve always had a passion for infosec going as far back to my teenager years. It was my dream to work in this field. However, where I live, dreams seldom come true. Of course I’m not entirely innocent. I should’ve worked harder for my dream instead of succumbing to my parents a long time ago. Currently I’m a phd candidate in an unrelated field. Since there really isn’t an industry in my country the only way for me is to go academic after the phd. However deep down I still want to work in infosec. But I don’t see why anyone would hire me. Anyway, a friend of mine, who also graduated from an unrelated field but working in infosec in a relatively good company told me that if I get OSCP, it would at least make potential employers think twice. I’m now thinking maybe I should give a shot at my dream job before going full academic after phd. What do you experienced people think about this? Would I have a chance or should I let it go?
