Thanks for all the great work you do. I am writing this post because I need help from anybody that is willing to help. I am studying for my CISSP exam, and I have a decade of IT experience. I have heard that some experience are allowed for the CISSP. All I need is for someone to look at my profile and tell me if with my experience I qualify to be CISSP certified. I know I can be an associate if I do not have the required experience. But I just want to know if someone can help. I will leave my LinkedIn attached.
Congratulations on your new career goal.
Now, in answer to your request:
That is, build a custom resumé or c.v. that focuses specifically on your info systems security experience.
This, of course, means you first have to read and understand the CISSP experience requirements, then reorganize your work history into activities that fit that requirement.
You may find yo do not need any of us to review your experience.
This advice is along the same lines given to job hunters:
Keep a generic resumé handy for job fairs and surprise opportunities
When applying for a specific position research both the job requirements and the company or institution. Then prepare a customized resumé that targets the company, the industry, and that position.
Your page may be different, but I have yet to see any LinkeDin page that is an adequate resumé.
Good luck, and let us know how your own analysis goes.
Hi @jarias15 - you can reference this page for what qualifies as relevant work experience for the CISSP https://www.isc2.org/Certifications/CISSP/experience-requirements
... if anybody had the skills to say, ... you will be certified...
The only group that can offer such assurances is the (ISC)² endorsement team itself. Their signoff requires completing and submitting the endorsement form. Unfortunately, this is only available after you have passed the exam in question.
Given that limitation @CraginS has the right approach. Build your own resume that highlights the relevant experience, parenthetically noting the domains to which each experience applies. In doing so, the answer will become clear to you. And bonus, the annotated resume will make the eventual submission really easy.
You said, "The issue is that it says that I have to have experience in the 8 domains."
To clarify, you do not need experience in all 8 fomains. Rather, quoting the page as @Kaity linked it:
"minimum of five years cumulative paid work experience in two or more of the eight domains of the CISSP CBK."
