Obtaining a cybersecurity job with no experience?

How can I write a quality resume for a cyber security job with no work experience?

“I am trying to switch careers and get into the cybersecurity field. My issue is that I do not know how to word my résumé because I have little to no experience. What do I do?”

This is a question that I get very often. If you have earlier work experience then it is actually easier than you think to tie in IT or cybersecurity experience. I have reviewed several resumes and assisted in the hiring of some very qualified professionals. I have also hired people who have the great potential and their résumé demonstrates that they are capable of learning new skills quickly. So, how do I decide if a person has potential? I review their past work experience and decide their knowledge as well as their ability to learn. When I speak with them in the interview process, I also decide what can this person could bring to the team.

Within this podcast, I will cover a few steps that person can do to make their résumé stand out, even without a strong cybersecurity background.
