Information Security Professionals x Market conditions

Recommended Posts

Guest CISSP

Hi all,

 

Quite interesting forum, pleased to read so much information conveyed in one place!

 

I'm a Security Professional with 12+ years experience in the field, also holding market recognized certifications such as CISSP, CISA, CEH, ISO 27001 Lead Auditor, ITIL and Prince2.

 

Could you please share how the Infosec Market currently is in AU? I'm moving to Australia by december, and just trying to figure out how long it might take for me to find a job, since I've got no local experience (what seems to be a big issue).

 

If you are IT, but not into security, your opinion will also be appreciated!

How was your experience in Australia. Did you got the job easily?

 

I am planning to migrate here, before migrating I needed to analyze the market condition.

Hi there,

 

We're hoping to come out at the end of next year and I'm just wondering how you got on with your job search? I notice this thread is rather old so I'm hoping you're still out there...?! My husband is a penetration tester / IT sec consultant, CTL-cleared (Crest Check Team Leader). Just curious as to the market at the moment (and hoping it won't suffer any potential recession over the next year or so) as you're both in the same line of work :-)

 

Thanks,

 

I-F

The market here seems very tough in IT. I'm not a security specialist but it seems that the market is saturated here and employers are now weeding out based on; Local experience (have you worked here before), then total experience.

 

IT roles here seem to be a little different to the UK. Very niche, broad skill sets seem to be a negative and very,very competitive(or at least Sydney is).
