    For people who think they may be interested in cybersecurity as a career path, I always advise looking at the study materials for the CompTIA Security+ certification. If you are specifically interested in (Cyber) Security Operations Center (SOC) work, look at the CompTIA CySA+ certification.

    If the topics in either of these certs really interest you then you might be right for a cybersecurity career. If you think the material is dry and boring, you might be better to consider cybersecurity as a side-specialization to a different primary career path, such as software development or network engineering.

    For an introductory look at IP networking as a career, CompTIA Network+ and Cisco CCNA are what to look at.

    Well OP, I guess it depends on which area in cyber security you are interested in. There are many areas (auditor/consultant), policy, penetration testing/red teaming, blue teaming, DF/IR, the list goes on. Not sure of your background/work experience but I would say reach out to people you work with/know and ask them for lunch and see what they do, what day to day is like, perks/downsides etc. Another cert isn't going to help. Once you know what path you want to go down, then pursue a cert that can lead into that potential job etc.
