My name is Matt, and I have over 20 years of experience in the IT and cybersecurity fields, with a focus on computer networking and technology training.  I have degrees in Computer Information Science and Business, and Cisco CCNA, CompTIA A+, Network+, Security+, Server+ and CySA+ certifications.  I am passionate about the field of cybersecurity and the career opportunities that it provides.  As a cybersecurity trainer who works daily with aspiring cybersecurity professionals, I've been asked countless times for advice on:

  • How to connect with employers
  • How to land an internship or first job
  • How to negotiate a raise or promotion
  • How to gain a security clearance
  • How to interview effectively
  • How to improve a specific technical skill
  • Which sector of cybersecurity to pursue
  • Which cyber certifications to earn
  • How to get into cybersecurity
  • How to learn cybersecurity
  • I realized that the best way to help others was to compile the information and resources I've accumulated into a centralized location.  And with that goal, StartACyberCareer.com was born.  I hope you enjoy the site.  Best of luck on your cybersecurity career goals!
