In this Han Solo edition of the Exploring Information Security podcast, I discuss my experience on why getting into infosec is hard.

This is a solo episode where I share my thoughts on why it's hard to get into infosec. I've been on both sides of the interview process. In this episode I share my own personal experience (where I failed), as well as what I've seen on why people didn't get the role they wanted. This topic deals with the skills shortage topic often discussed on Twitter and other media. It's a very nuanced topic. I wanted to focus on what those applying could do better to apply and interview for an opportunity.

In this episode:

  • Why people don't apply?
  • Why requirements can limit job opportunities
  • Why your resume sucks
  • How are you preparing for the interview?
  • What are you doing to improve your chances of getting an offer?
