The Journey of a Junior Penetration Tester
While Combitech wasn’t my first job, it still was the first one in a different country. Besides worries about my language skills and possible differences in work culture thousands of questions were racing through my head before I got started. Am skilled enough for the job? What are the expectations of the team? Will the colleagues be nice? Will I work with things I find interesting?
It is very common in the IT-Security field to feel overwhelmed by the tools, methodologies, acronyms, and required skills when starting out in the beginning. Unfortunately, I cannot tell you that it will get better after working for two years within the field. In my talk I want to give you my personal answer to the questions above, and give you my view on how to tackle the infamous imposter syndrome.”
