There are few talks that address what some consider to be the hardest part of getting a job in InfoSec: the hiring process. Information security is in desperate need of people with the technical skills hackers have to fill a myriad of roles within organizations across the world.

Organizations are doing poorly trying to communicate expectations for a job, there are people going to interviews without knowing how to showcase their (limited or vast) experience, and some people posture themselves so poorly that the hiring managers don’t think the candidates are really interested in the job. This talk takes the experiences of the speakers as both interviewers & interviewees (as well as from others) in order to help better prepare to enter (or move within) “the industry,” as well as let hiring managers know what they can do to get the people & experience they need for their teams.
