I am new here and to IT itself. I have a Bachelor of Music degree. Currently, a music career is not panning out for me the way I'd like. I have a great interest in computer language; so recently I have decided that I would like to be employed in an IT related field. The field that interests me the most is Security.
Sorry if I sound totally oblivious, but where do I begin? Do I go to a school? If so, where and for how long? Do I go for certifications? If so, which ones? I keep reading people posting
"experience is the most important thing" in finding a job and education-wise. However, if I don't have any experience, how can I expect to get a job in IT Security or other IT field?
All intelligent responses greatly appreciated.
Actually, all responses are greatly appreciated- intelligent well-informed ones even more. Whatever.
