What jobs are out there, what jobs interest you and/or fit best with your desires, abilities, and preferences. I talk about eight (8) practices, over a dozen jobs, and 12 markets/industries, for listeners to learn about. This talk came out of a 1:1 I had with an early professional at my company and I believe many listeners can benefit from this conversation. Where do you want to take your cyber security career? What's out there? How do you find it? What should you do?
