Which career has better quality of life and opportunities to work remotely from home Cyber Security or Project Management?


John Webb Kingsland, GA

Is there a profession or jobs where you are fusing both professions at an entry or junior level position? I plan on getting certifications in both. Looking to get the most out of my Navy Benefits before I retire.

Hi John
The climate and availability of remote working opportunities continues to evolve and while you are trying to start a new career it may be a limitation that could hinder your development. With a number of large organizations decreasing head count I think remote work will decrease. That being said, you should follow your passion. If you have TS/SCI clearances those could be leveraged in the both the cyber and project management to increase your salary requirements but starting positions for Scrum Masters and Cyber Security Analyst are roughly equivalent. if you are looking to leverage both there are positions for scum masters and project managers available on cybersecurity teams and security infrastructure teams.
