Title: RE: How to get better security people
| The problem right now is if you advertise for a job, you will get
That's the problem. Too many folks seeing the big money going to the tech weenies, and upon taking an MCSE boot camp, think they now qualify for a senior Admin/Security job. That and resume inflation, real or percieved. Too much noise in the system and inefective noise reduction methods...
My resume is factual, and when I got out of the military, I was penalized by my first civilian employer. When I stated I could in fact set up a needed DNS, I was told they would hire it out. I asked why hire it out when I could do it. I was told, "we only believe half of any resume we get, and we don't think that you have the necessary experience." If setting up and running <deleted>.af.mil (now gone), and doing the very first <deleted>.af.mil DNS located on the base (complete with off-site secondaries), and running it until transitioned about a year later to the comm squadron folks I trained didn't count, then what did?
Not bitter, though. Got a new employer...
