Since I'm looking at this as a career path I wanted to ask "what's an average day at work for a pentester?"
I know the answer will vary from job to job (and skill set), but I'd like to know the range of tasks out there. Do you just run standard tools against an IP? Poke holes in web apps by hand? Social your way into a building and install hardware keyloggers? Spend 80% of your time writing up reports? Is your life more "office space" than "war games"?
Obviously I'm after generals rather than NDA-breaking specifics
