Which T2?

YOE?

Yeah this caught me by surprise based on other numbers I'd seen from recruiters. Think I really did well on the interviews though / am close to the big T2 MBA-lvl promotion / had relevant experience / and successfully negotiated. Then FAANG reached out last minute

If you are asked to leave your firm (e.g., being told as a third year that it’s not working out and you should begin to look elsewhere, given a bit of a runway), does that count as being fired/terminated for the sake of future job applications? If you’re asked down the line if you’ve ever been fired, do you have to say yes? If you’re asked why you left that job, is it okay to not say you were fired but just five other reasons why you wanted a change?

Hey fam. Appreciate your inputs on this: I used to be a software developer and currently work as a tech risk consultant (CISA, CRISC certified). Have completed a couple of cyber courses but do not have prior cyber experience. Most cyber sec job postings require prior experience in cloud, aws, devops etc. Applied to a couple of roles but no avail. A) Can I start a career in cyber security without prior experience? B) Will CISSP or relevant cyber certifications help?
