This is my first message on this forum, so, thanks for reading and it was interesting so far to read all your experiences and opinions.
I am getting into pentesting, and since this is pretty much the thing I plan to do long into the future, I have a few concerns.
I don't see much job adds for pentesting and rates are not really up to technical and intellectual challenges of the tasks involved, I would say.
I see on http://www.itjobswatch.co.uk/ that average consultants rate for pentesting is about £350, which is rather low. Even pure Linux admin is £400.
How do you explain that, and what do you think about future of pentesting in following years?
I see that there is more and more certifications for pentesting / ethical hacking and more and more people wants to get into the field, but is there a work for all of us down the road...?
