So for anyone who don't know about six months ago I landed my dream job as junior penetration tester. Well recently I lost this job and was told they didn't think I was ready and they could not make money on me. This was a big shock to me as at no point did they give any indication that they felt I was not doing ok. During my time with them I done everything they asked me and they seemed happy with my progress.
Anyway I am now in a situation where I have no job and really don't know what to do. I feel down and feel like as much as I want be pen tester am I really not that good enough I know I have loads to learn and I felt I was doing really well and it just come as a big shock. Half me want to give up but the other wants to prove a point to them. However I cant put my life on hold hoping I get another security job.
What would you guys do in the same situation ?
