Cybersecurity Professional

Hiring Manager

Stuck in a job that you have been trying to get away from for months, maybe even years. Not finding any jobs in the market that match up to your duties or even remotely understands the complexities of cyber technology. Frustration setting in, just like many of your peers.

Just came out of a team meeting with the new task of setting up interviews to staff a new cybersecurity department. You are at a loss because the world of cyber security is foreign. It’s a daunting task that if executed poorly could make your company even more vulnerable to cyberattacks.

The Problem with Cybersecurity Job Advertisements

1. Clumping Jobs Together
A search over the leading recruitment platforms will yield job titles like Security Engineer, Security Analyst, Security Architect, Security Manager, and Security Consultant all return practically the same duties and performances.

2. Common Words Are Not Common In Cyber
If hiring managers do not know the vernacular of the cyber industry and are not willing to train hiring personnel then not only will you fail to get the best candidate but you will probably experience odd stares and uncomfortable questions. For example, advertising for a Senior Pen Tester may draw the ire of your boss, only to learn later that a Senior Pen Tester is a legal hacker that works to find security threats in web applications, networks and systems.

3. Cookie-Cutter

Cut, copy, and pasting from other posts to create your job description has major consequences. Consider the qualified applicant reading a job description that does not match industry standards, and contradicts job duties; surely he/she will not apply. A compelling job post is vital to attracting the right candidates so they can make an informed decision in order to match their needs to the companies.
