Career Guidance – Getting hired in a penetration testing role

Here is the presentation everyone has been asking me for. “Getting hired as a pentester” gives students practical steps to bridge the vast, cavernous gap between formal education and penetration testing in a professional security consulting role.

I gave this presentation at the sold out Cyber Security Career Kick Start #CyberSecKickStart event at RMIT University. Thanks to Ricki Burke and Rebecca Kingsford for hosting this.

It was an honour to be speaking alongside such industry luminaries. The line up was Craig Horne, Abbas Kudrati, Craig Searle, Andrew Horton (myself), and Nathaniel Wakelam.
