Im nearing the end of a Masters Degree in Ethical Hacking and Computer Security.
Im finding getting work in Pen Testing a bit of a challenge due to the chicken and the egg situation of not having experience and no one wanting to give me experience by hiring a newbee. How do you break into the industry if no-one will hire you raw? I am not arrogant enough to think I know it all and want to work closely and be mentored on the job, but no one seems interested unless you have 5 plus years experience.
Does anyone know a comapny that would be interested in hiring someone and shaping and moulding them into an experienced pen tester? Or are other newbees finding the same problem?
