    Just to be clear, you aren’t talking about expert certifications right? CCIE, GSE, the Juniper equivalent are all expert high level certifications, none of which require documented experience to sit/claim. Also, CISSP/CISA/CISM etc. all let you sit for the exam prior to having the experience and give a time frame you have to achieve and then get endorsed by somebody to claim the credential...although at times I question those that have been endorsed.

    PMP and related project management certs require proof you have the relevant years of project management experience before you can even register for the exam - vetting of the experience is done via random selection where they will contact your employers and references to see if you are legit and if not, you lose the expensive registration fee.

    I suspect there are other high level certs that have this sort of barrier.

    All this questions about whether to remove the certs, or the Master's or both or neither. Maybe just write a bunch of different resumes with the various permutations and send them out.

    One thing I've become convinced of in my years of work and looking for work is that there is no magic bullet to getting a job: what one potential employer hates, another will love, and there's often no way to know the particular biases and fetishes of that next potential employer.

    Careful now, Octal.
    Giving such advice might get you labeled as "deceitful".

    Thanks everyone for this great advice. I've decided to keep my degree on my resume and take off my certifications.

    Did you ever say what certs they are? If they are entry level certs i.e. A/N/S+, etc, then don't take them off.

    I'm running into a similar problem with having at least sufficient credentials, but not enough experience. Plus I've been unemployed for a while and it seems the longer one is unemployed, the harder it is to get back on the horse.

    What roles are you trying to get and what is your experience?

    You are right about being unemployed for long time creating negative connotations. However job specific skills can help you get in. You should focus on getting hands on experience, if possible.

    You are only as good as your weakest link. If you don't have experience, which is the most important piece of the formula you aren't much better off than others....

    From my painful experience, someone with 6 months experience is > than a masters and 10 certs with no experience.

    Degrees and Certs are "NICE TO HAVES" experience is a must.... I would recommend working short termed projects, like 3 week deployments or some project work. Parlay that into a contract and hopefully you'll be off to the races.....

    I know that companies like Accenture take graduates in without any experience.

    I've seen other job posting like this, so have a look around.

    (Copying my reply from a previous thread...)

    Also look into junior positions. There's quite a few out there for:


    -Junior Cyber Threat Analyst
    -Junior SOC
    -Junior Security Administrator.

    Lots of them only incorporate requirements such as: 1 year of experience, a Bachelors (any field), and basic certifications (eg: Security+) . It wouldn't hurt to apply.

    Edit: Location is also a critical factor as well. Most of the junior positions seem to be in the East Coast if you're in the States.

    graduates as in fresh interns. Someone trying to get into cyber security from IT admin side obviously will fall through the cracks. And this is exactly what is happening.
    These are the very people who are trying extremely hard to gain knowledge, often at their own cost and money, gain certifications only to be told that there are no vacancies for them.
    And when the drive back home dejected what do they hear - That another study has just declared that cyber security talent shortage is worsening and so many thousands more are needed in next x months!
