Just passed the CISSP with a mid-term (3-5 years) goal of moving into an ISSM-like or Cyber Risk role. I also have a PMP and various other certs and non-technical degrees. Any advice on what’s next?

Tbh once you have CISSP for this field there is no much point to accumulating more certs. I suggest you look to NIST/ISO framework and learn more of difference focus areas (end point, encryption, PCI, etc.)

Great points! Thanks folks

Also, not sure about whether the firm has maternity leave (not in the handbook). Is there an easy way to bring it up after I announce? Thanks for the advice!

Do internships count towards years of experience? I held my first design internship in 12th grade (2016), and have since held at least one internship per semester throughout college, all related to my career path - but they were all part time. In my last semester of college (May 2020 grad), I worked as a full time contractor for 18mos. I freelanced after, before working as an FTE the past year.

When asked how many years of experience I have, how should I answer?

Thanks in advance!

Hi everyone. I started to work in this company (first paid job) one year ago. In this year I performed well, met the goals and gave an impact to whole team from social point of view. I think my current salary is ok, but I am considering asking for a small raise now, after one year has passed. The increase would not change my life but would make me appreciated and valued. Is it too early to ask for a raise or it’s legit? I have a very good relationship with my boss and I don’t want to fuck up.

Currently I work in a company where there is no proper techstack.
All the work is done in Java yet nothing like spring, springboot, hibernate, Microservices, Angular is used.

Now these technologies are required in any interview. How will you suggest one can have great learning experience in them even if they don't have access to actual client side code.

I think client code is far more complex and the learning there cannot be matched by self study. Am i right about this?
