Acquire a Rounded Skill Set Although having knowledge of cyber security is important, having more rounded technical experience will also help your application. Check out courses that are available to give you a basic grounding of IT. Learning in the Workplace Through an Apprenticeship If you’d prefer a more hands on approach to getting a cyber security job, you can check with the National Apprenticeship Service to see if there are any relevant apprenticeships going. Work Experience If there aren’t any apprenticeships available, you could check to see if you can do unpaid work experience to get a better idea of the fundamental aspects of cyber security. Internships An internship is another possible useful way of gaining employment in cyber security. Although this may be unpaid (like work experience), the experience will be a valuable, useful addition to your CV.
