i believe you are all doing fine,

I just completed my first bachelor's degree in I.T-Security with SMC university (Swiss management center) which is an online program, i opted for this program because of its flexibility in payments and studies for people in third countries.

I work as a cashier in our national utility company, upon completion of my degree all i have are theories and practical and no exposure to industrial ICT.

i plan to start certifications with compTia from A+ to Security +, to acquire more knowledge.

Any advice is all welcome, i will appreciate.

Warm regards.

    I would like to specialize in Security, should start with Security+, skip A+ and N+? or i have to start mandatory with A+?

    Well often the path to a security position involved doing basic IT/sysadmin/networking. In that case, A+, Network+ is often helpful

    What you should do is start with the Security+. You need to determine if you like the topics and problems found in information security, and studying the Security+ is a good way to do that. If you find the Security+ material interesting, then InfoSec might be the career path for you. If you find the Security+ material dry, boring, and you lack the motivation to study it, you might be better suited for some other area of learning that excites you more.
