    Am I the only one worried about that?

    I'm studying Cyber Security at postgraduate level and have a BA in Criminology and Sociology. I'm worried that I won't be able to find a job in Cyber Security because employers will not consider me qualified enough since my undergraduate degree is not in Computer Science or a STEM subject

    There was a guy at my workplace as a developer having only done a degree in History. Some companies will take you if you are willing to learn and adapt to a more challenging role. Don't worry about it, if it means starting at entry level then that's a good way in.

    Tbh you’re in a better position than most, like some people will struggle to get jobs due to the increase in technology taking over smaller jobs. You seem like you could always do a computer based job.

    I’m worried that I won’t get a job in the animal field because my GCSEs and my BTEC were in irrelevant subjects (ethics, science,maths,English) (childcare)
    But my new BTEC will be in Animal Management
    So I totally understand how you feel!
