I wouldn’t call it a failure - you made it all the way to the final with barely any experience so you obviously have something of interest or are great at interviewing! Hang in there and keep at it, make sure the roles match your loe so your not losing out to people with more experience.

What roles were you interviewing for? How many YOE?

JPM1 - nope, I only have a BA and a 2020 grad. For LinkedIn I was reached out by recruiter via LinkedIn and for google i applied on their website without referral. I spend a lot of time writing my resume though

Anyone know what kind of experience or certifications I should be aiming to get if I'm trying to break into a pentest role? I just graduated last year and have about a year of sysadmin experience and am trying to get into it asap. So, I'm already applying/job hunting and probably won't get much replies but. Should I be looking at more security analyst/admin roles first? Going for certs? Getting a masters? Wondering what I can do to improve my chances. TIA

Hello Fishes, I have recently cleared the interviews in Deloitte USI. I had my salary negotiation, 9 days after the last interview. After this, suddenly I had received a mail asking me to submit my personal details on the Avature website, in which I am not able to log in. Reached out to HR, but not getting the link. The team who will release the OL told I need to submit those details, for them to generate and release my OL. Anubody facing this issue or having a suggestion for me?
