Graduate/Entry Level Roles

Post Posted: Fri Dec 04, 2015 6:29 pm

Hi,

I am currently a final year student studying towards a Bachelors in Forensic Computing. I am looking for some starting point in my career in Computer/Digital Forensics, so it would be much appreciated if any of you could point me in some directions towards some positions for students like myself who will be graduating soon. I have experience of working with EnCase, FTK, WinHex, Autopsy, XRY along with some knowledge of networking.

Thanks for taking the time to view and read my post i look forward to any advice you may have.

Some potential jobs for someone with no experience in digital forensics:

Junior Security Analyst

Security Analyst

or get some IT experience, of any kind:

IT Support Technician

1st Line Helpdesk Technician

or join the police department, work your way up to inspector/forensic examiner, do great work. With some experience a job like an XCC747 Invest Support Officer might be in your future.

There are a lot of candidates out there with experience, if you have no IT or investigative experience you are at a huge disadvantage (no matter what your University Adviser told you).
