SAN FRANCISCO, May 3, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Cybersecurity job interviews can be tough. As in all interview situations, there's the challenge of presenting yourself well. But given the variety of backgrounds and paths that lead people into information security, it's not always easy to know what interviewees should emphasize, nor what interviewers are looking for in a job candidate. That's where penetration tester Fabio Baroni's resource on Peerlyst (https://www.peerlyst.com) comes in: It's a rich primer on what to do—and not to do—to land the InfoSec job of your dreams.
In his post, "Cracking the InfoSec Interview for Fun and Profit," Baroni covers everything from formal educational credentials and certifications to informal ways of gaining and demonstrating security expertise. The latter includes collaborating on open-source projects, blogging, and attending InfoSec conferences. He also includes comprehensive lists of questions that interviewees should be prepared to answer, covering both network and application security.
Baroni's interview-prep resource is irreverent at times—for instance, he makes a case for drinking good Italian espresso instead of instant coffee—but his intention is serious: helping cybersecurity professionals put their best foot forward during job interviews that can make or break careers.
