Do any 🐠 know of cyber jobs willing to teach rather than expecting deep knowledge right away? I spent two years in EY’s tech risk practice where I experienced an apprenticeship-style culture. I had no audit nor tech background but I was willing to learn, and those above me were willing to teach. After studying for and passing the CISSP, I transferred to cyber but the expectation from managers was to have deep technical cyber knowledge, which I thought I would develop over time from experience.

Hello Everyone!! Looking for advice. What the skills I can gain to be a cybersecurity consultant? I know it’s kinda vague as I know there are lot of fields you can specialize in. I have obtained CompTIA Sec+, CySA+ and CASP+ certification. I also passed CISSP. Now I don’t know what to do. Workwise I haven’t been staffed in cyber projects so I can’t explore what I like. What do you guys think are some hot skills that a cyber consultant has? And what’s the best way to obtain those skills?
