Details and specificity are the difference between someone who may know what they are talking about and someone who can talk about what they know.

Top 3 Ways To Talk About What You Know:
  • Tell a story. Talk about what you have done, not what you know.
  • Get in the weeds (with everyone). Sometimes talking in such specificity that you go over someone’s head is a good thing. Articulate the nuance.
  • Rehearse. Practice makes perfect and if you think you are always best impromptu, think again. Repetition leads to ritual which leads to recitation.

Demand for contract penetration testers is surging throughout the cyber service provider community.

Top 3 Ways To Leverage An Age Diversified Human Infrastructure:
  • Different generations possess different skill sets that can complement one another! A Millennial’s comfort with social media can be combined with a Baby Boomer’s intimate knowledge of embedded technology at a company.
  • Mentor/mentee relationships can aid in the development of young talent. Someone in their 60s who is comfortable in their position can help slingshot a younger employee to greater heights by speeding the acquisition of company knowledge.
