7MS #290: Interview with Joe Klein
My pal and former coworker Joe Klein joins me in the virtual studio to discuss:
- His career as a diesel mechanic and insurance guru
- How to leave a stable job, take a huge pay cut and start a risky infosec internship (sounds like the name of a broadway musical!)
- The start of his new career as a SOC analyst
- The importance of having a career cheerleader/mentor
- Being hungry for knowledge and certifications without being ashamed or afraid to look like a newb
- CompTIA Security+ and Cisco CCNA Cyber Ops certs
- The proper pronunciation of the word "dude"
- How to do a proper Arnold Schwarzenegger impression
