Skills Gap: More Than a Resume
On this week’s episode of The Defender’s Advantage Podcast, Skills Gap series host Chris Campbell is joined by Mandiant’s Fernando Tomlinson and Matt Boyle for a discussion on the value of hiring individuals from diverse professional backgrounds and ensuring accessibility to certifications and tools for those interested in transitioning to the cyber security field.
Fernando and Matt share their thoughts on what hiring teams in the industry can do to learn more about an applicant’s analytical or soft skills outside of their resume. They also discuss the tools and resources that are available to foster greater diversity in the industry, which prospective candidates may not have immediate knowledge of, including topical video libraries, SANS Cyber Immersion Academies and industry conferences.
