One of the most challenging problems an entry-level candidate faces is showing experience on a resume. It’s pretty much impossible to show experience if you don’t have any without outright lying. Well, the good news is there are several ways to fill in this gap on your resume.
One of those is with online courses and self-study. We actually spoke about this in a previous blog. Another option is to get involved with your local cyber security community!
You have heard me say, “employers like to see passion” often. And this is true! Passion is how you approach something. Do you have a sparkle in your eye when you talk about it? Are you constantly doing things related to the subject? Are you involved in the community?
And we will stop with the third question since that is the topic of this blog. If you haven’t found a community to get involved in, no worries. In this blog, we will discuss how you can find a group of like-minded individuals, aka get involved in infosec!
In many Reddit threads and conversations on other social media, I often hear the advice, “if you want to get into cyber security, start at the help desk.” But, in my opinion, if you want to get into cyber security, you should start in the SOC.
This blog will highlight my five arguments for avoiding the help desk and jumping right into the fire that is the security operations center, aka “The SOC.”
Resumes have many descriptions such as annoying, time-consuming, a pain in the a**. But most of all, I think they are known for being a powerful tool for job hunting.
What if you could generate an updated resume in a matter of minutes versus hours? What if this resume was also optimized for resume sorting algorithms? Well, guess what? This is all possible using LinkedIn.
In this blog, I will walk you through building a resume quickly using your LinkedIn Profile.
Do you hate updating your resume all the time? Or are you confused about how HR resume parsing software works? That makes at least two of us. Or rather, it did makes two of us until my close friend told me the secret of LinkedIn.
Resumes are notorious for being confusing and a pain. Because…. well they just are. And as an occasional job hunter, it is hard to master the skill. We typically rely on professional resume writers to assist us, but sometimes it doesn’t make sense to shell out money.
After reading this blog, you will be able to easily update your resume, quickly apply for high-quality job postings, and attract recruiters to your profile.
It's time for another update on what's going on with TheCU and me. Tons of stuff actually. Let's dive in.
Have you just started your job hunt and already had issues finding a role for your junior-level skills? You are not alone. Sometimes we content creators make it seem like a sure fit to get into the industry, but it isn’t always so.
Job hunting takes effort, luck, and determination. In this post, we will cover job listing sites, companies, and recruiters hiring for Junior SOC Analysts. With these tools, your job hunt should come to a conclusion in no time!
Are you worried that when you submit your resume, it looks like all the rest in the pile? Well, you are not alone. Even with the deficit of infosec practitioners, the competition for quality jobs is still high.
To get an offer, you still must stand out from the crowd to get noticed. This proverbial pile, I speak of, isn’t just a single stack but is actually made up of multiple interview phases that companies use to sift through candidates.
This blog will discuss things you can do to your resume to supercharge it to land multiple interviews.
Are you gearing up for your first interview, nervous and unsure of what questions are coming your way? I feel you. During my first interview, I was a nervous wreck. And guess what? I still am anytime I interview. These are normal concerns for most people.
In this blog, you will find some of the most common questions I have seen during interviews for the Junior Soc Analyst role. Many of these I have asked myself while interviewing candidates.
Instead of just providing an answer you can memorize, I will give you the reasons behind the questions. I encourage you to spend time researching the questions on your own. Before the interview, you should understand the topic well enough to discuss it more than surface level with the interviewer. They will be probing to see if you actually know what you are talking about. I promise 😊.
