Pentester Candidate Program – March 2018

Pentester Candidate Program March 2018

On the 24th  of February 2018, InfoSec Addicts will launch the Pentester Candidate Program. This program is designed to satisfy the basic requirements of a penetration tester. The program will cover the most common technical and soft skill requirements. Top candidates will later receive job interviews for a remote penetrating testing job. This is through partnership with several penetration testing firms

Top candidates may receive interview opportunities for a cleared penetration testing position. This is more so for those with a US Security Clearance and who live in either the DC, Maryland or Virginia areas.

This is the real chance more so for those who REALLY want to become pentesters. It is the perfect combination of hands-on training, mentorship, and a real job opportunity.

  • Log book of all of your labs. This is a technical walk-through document demonstrating your proficiency to companies you interview with
  • A letter of reference from Joe McCray
  • Top candidates are guaranteed interviews with consulting firms and DoD contracting companies.

Candidates will have a chance to take ANY and AS MANY classes that they want from InfoSec Addicts. This will come as part of this program. Most notably, as many as 20 classes are held per month.
