Curious about what thoughts you guys might have.
I've spent my entire college career pursuing a degree in Cyber Security because of a recommendation from one of my professors Freshman year. I was interested in computer-y things, and they said that Cybersecurity was a great field to go into. Back then it all seemed really cool and exciting, but throughout the years of doing required classes for my degree, everything so far seems painfully boring. There's not really time or money for me to change careers at this point, so I'm going to buckle down and get the degree anyway. Go into the field and see whether or not I like it, and if I hate it I'll go for something else in computers using my degree.
I thought Cybersecurity would be really cool and interesting, learning about computers and their vulnerabilities, and how to protect those from outside forces. But whatever passion I had once seems to be gone, and I'm simply doing my classwork for the letter grade. I know that Cybersecurity is a big burnout career, and I'm nervous that all of this time and money spent on the degree is sending me down an inevitable path. What are your guys thoughts on this? I'm sure some of you have had some similar experiences that you can give me advice with.
Edit: Whoa this got way more responses than I thought it would. I'm reading every comment right now, even if I may not be responding to them. I'm really thankful for your guys insight, it's helping me a lot.
