A piece of advice for anyone that is studying IT or CyberSecurity.

Real-world practice, along with your education and certificates, is extremely important to your growth in this industry. However, many employers will ask for experience, even though it is very clear you have just completed or are continuing your education. One of the best ways to gain experience, as well as give back to your community, is to find a non-profit organization (NPO) that needs help with their internal infrastructure and security posture.
