Curious how being a ‘CISSP Candidate’ (passes the exam but doesn’t have experience requirements) would fair in a job search. Better to get years of experience requirement before looking, or is passing the exam enough?

I think it helped me. I just put Associate of ISC2 or whatever the actual terminology is on the site. I think I also put (CISSP) behind it

Technically can't claim you have the CISSP till you do, Associate of ISC2 is recommended in the meantime to avoid flak

Just note that once you have passed the exam, you have 9 months to apply for certification and get the 5 years of required experience (1 yr waiver if degree in IT/sec) before you have to take the exam again. So plan to take the exam if you have at least 3.25/4.25 years of IT experience

26M, making $150k base at a healthcare startup doing strategy. Also about to finish a part time masters (non-MBA), and planning to find new roles after that.

Do you think an MBA would be helpful to advance my career at this point assuming I stay the course in healthcare? Is an executive mba in a few years a better move? Is a 710 good enough to apply to top 10 schools? TIA!
