Event Date / Time: 12th March 2019 – 5:30pm to 8:00pm (AEDT)

In the ever-changing Security and GRC job market there are many ideas as to how to highlight your achievements to a potential employer in the most effective manner; How we can be as impactful as possible through –

  • Job Sites ?
  • Linkedin?
  • Applying directly?
  • Certifications that are relevant?
  • Certifications that will be valid in years to come?

Questions such as these fill the job market at both ends of the scale, for both senior and junior roles, and often come back with inconsistent and even inaccurate answers. Over the past year there has been a significant trend upwards in the Security & GRC market sectors and to make the most of an opportunity you need to be prepared.

In the presentation outlined we will explore and attempt to answer many questions and speak to industry professionals, recruiters and hiring managers alike about what they are seeing in the market, what they look for, what they view as irrelevant and what makes your profile shine.

We will cover topics such as:

  • Linkedin Profiles
  • CV’s
  • Interview styles
  • Interview preparation vs over preparation
  • Candidate/ Client Journey
  • Internal Processes and what they mean for you.

The ISACA Melbourne Chapter invites you to join us a Robert Walters offices, for an informative evening to provide visibility into an ever-changing Security and GRC recruitment market.
