Will the OSCP open doors?

Hi all,
Have  the CISSP and want to move on to OSCP for getting into incident handling, threat analysis eventually...
Is this a good move?
thanks

    Yes, I just got hired for a Senior Cyber Analyst job and one of the factors for my hire was the pentesting and red team certs/skills I had. The CISSP was a must and a deal breaker if I did not have it.

    Do you have prior experience with pentesting?

    very cool, I was going to recommend VHL 3 month lab access $250 before jumping into PWK. It is very similar with 40+ hosts and course materials are very excellent. It doesn't cover BOF though, however everything else is solid. You can learn BOF when you get into PWK.
