I’m transitioning from the military (CBRN and Combat Engineer) into cybersecurity. I completed a cybersecurity boot camp and I’ll be taking the Security+ exam soon. I haven’t had any interviews and I’ve received a fair amount of rejections emails. Could anyone give me some tips and possibly tell me how to improve my resume?

I’m interviewing for an AE position at a smaller agency, about 80 people. Looking at people’s profiles that work at this agency on LinkedIn, it feels like I have more experience than all AEs there and match more with SAE levels. I know I applied to an AE position, but could I ask the recruiter about having an SAE title? Is that a bad look?

I have an interview Friday and don’t have the hiring manager’s email. I’ve been going through the recruiter.

In addition, when I send my thank you, should I also send a thank you to the recruiter who is my liaison during this process?

Private Equity groups at Oliver Wyman, S&, and EY Parthenon have all invited me to interview. Alix Partners has reached out to build out the Galt Co acquisition. 1. Anyone else who is considering a move to private equity consulting, are you concerned with joining at what could be the peak of M&A? Are these companies being rational in such a hot market when it comes to hiring? 2. Any thoughts on the quality of these teams relative to one another?

Also, once I told my expected ctc 7LPA for 3.2 yoe. He didn't ask for negotiations too. How long is good to wait before asking the hr.

Additional Posts in Work Red Flags

A company didn’t follow through with a scheduled intro phone call. I emailed during the time scheduled to see if something had come up & after as well to reschedule. No one answered me or followed up. I can’t help but feel like this is a little red flag. If you can’t follow though on an intro call… what’s your HR & the rest of the company doing? 😬


As a recruiter consultant, I have cringed at the descriptions that hiring managers share as the ideal candidate. Many have expressed wanting candidates who are between ages 25-35 🤦🏾. Like what....?!

The hiring manager spent so much time complaining about the previous person who was in the position instead of highlighting what would make me successful in the role

Interviewer is being recruited for high level remote position, but when joining a panel interview, the candidate does not cut on the camera. Big red flag as scamming for jobs since remote culture grew is becoming a big trend

When you tell your manager you are unhappy and they are excited that you are putting your notice and don't try and make any changes b/c the new person/persons they are lining up will just cleanup and make it better.

Then, they get here and you are left to train them on everything you do and your manager keeps saying "I owe you an apology" because they didn't realize how taxing and mind wrecking most processes you handled were... welcome to corporate


What comes to mind when a manager says "we work hard here?"

We expect flexibility with regard to schedules from our employees. In addition to your regular weekday hours, the need may arise for you to work evenings and occasionally on weekends. So, always be prepared to accommodate staffing demands.


During interview I was speaking to the hiring manager. Felt interview was going well. He seemed impressed by my answers, excited by my skills, and even gave me a tour of the office. At the end, he asked about my home life. When I spoke of my 3 young kiddos, the manager got a little taken back and replied Oh you have children? I said yes ages 3, 5, and 7. He then proceeded to ask me about daycare arrangements and if I can be reliable. Red flag as his demeanor changed and made me feel unworthy.


When hirings managers ask illegal or unethical questions that is not relevant to the job or skills needed for the role like...
How much are you making at current job
Are you pregnant or have any children
Do you have reliable daycare
Do you have reliable transportation
Do you have a criminal record

Have y'all experienced this?

During the pandemic I lost my job and was desperate. I found a 5 month tax law internship to full hire and applied.
Description: “$20/hr to JDs, $15/hr to JD students”.
This was our convo.
Me: …I graduated from law school a few months ago…
Interviewer: so I’ll be paying you $15/hr if you’re hired… I’ll let you know in a week
Me (in no position to negotiate): umm… okay
*3 months later*
Interviewer: You’re hired! However it will now be an unpaid internship, are you still interested?
Me: *ghosts*


The hiring manager didn't want to move forward with a candidate because of his gut feeling. The candidate had the experience and skills necessary but couldn't put his finger on why he didn't want move forward.

The only answer he could was that she asked if pay could be changed and asked about benefits.

I smell bias all the way
