Hi, my name is Jon! After serving my country as a communication electrician, I dreamed of a career in tech. I was afraid of chasing that dream and spent another 2 years in a dead-end job as a fire alarm technician. My wife kicked me out of the rut and gave me a 4-year window to achieve my goals.
Not knowing anything about the industry, I enrolled in college. They promised me an infosec job when I graduated, and I was excited. But after finishing my degree, nobody wanted to hire me. The only job in tech I could get was working on a help desk.
At one point, I had applied for over 100 security positions. We’ve all heard the same things. ‘You don’t have enough security experience’ or ‘you don’t have the right certification’. I once had an interviewer yell at me, telling me that I’d amount to nothing because I didn’t already have a CISSP after 2 years. Don’t get discouraged!
It’s difficult to break into security. I get that. You know what? I made it, and so can you. I can show you how, but more importantly, I can tell you all the things I wish I knew when I got started.
