How to deal with the "experience required" paradox

In this exciting edition of the Exploring Information Security (EIS) podcast, I talk with Jerry Bell about overcoming the "experience required" requirement on infosec job postings.

Jerry recently had a blog post on his site (malicious link) titled, "Dealing With The Experience Required Paradox For Those Entering Information Security." It is a wonderful article with actionable items on what people can do to overcome that stipulation on job postings. Jerry is also a co-host for the Defensive Security podcast.

In this episode we talk about:

  • Activities that can be done to overcome "experience required"
  • Who is does this requirement apply
  • Our own personal experiences and suggestions for overcoming the paradox
