But ... but ... that's against the code of ethics!

Re: CISSP Employement Proof Documentation

Only (ISC)2 can answer your questions, but if I were endorsing you, I'd want to see your resume/CV.   It should demonstrate work in the required breadth of CISSP domains for the required time period.

So what I need answered is do you think an employment offer letter for 2 jobs and W-2/ wage reports for 1 is enough to proof that I held a job for a certain amount of time? Or is ISC2 super particular about verifying whether or not you worked somewhere and will need more documentation? Because I can give them the W-2s /pay stubs for the other 2 jobs, if so


All the answers you seek can be found in your own thread!

From what you've written above, when compared with the information in Amanda's post, I'd say you haven't provided enough information.

 

However, when your application is reviewed ISC2 will contact you if they feel they need more information.

Re: CISSP Employement Proof Documentation

@dandadynamite93  -   It appears that you may be better off becoming an Associate of (ISC)2 at this time until you have at least 5 years experience in at least two of the eight CISSP domains.   Remember - to achieve a CISSP certification, a candidate must pass the test AND have the requisite experience.

 

Have you reviewed the CISSP requirements:  "Candidates must have a minimum of five years cumulative paid work experience in two or more of the eight domains of the CISSP CBK. Earning a four-year college degree or regional equivalent or an additional credential from the (ISC)² approved list will satisfy one year of the required experience. Education credit will only satisfy one year of experience.

 

A candidate who doesn’t have the required experience to become a CISSP may become an Associate of (ISC)² by successfully passing the CISSP examination. The Associate of (ISC)² will then have six years to earn the five years required experience."

Re: CISSP Employement Proof Documentation

By the way, there is NO shame in holding an Associate credential!   I think it's a significant accomplishment and demonstrates your commitment to the profession.

 

A colleague sat for the CISSP test and passed.   Three years later he submitted his 5 years of on-the-job experience, and quickly received his CISSP certification.    He's been very successful, knows the job extremely well, and enjoys his job.
