Hey guys,

So I have an interview next week with a large IT company that does Security and Pen testing for large organisations. I am applying for the position of Penetration Tester. Can anyone offer me any advice for the interview or key terms I can use to impress?

Lang: C#, PHP, HTML, CSS, JS
Learning: C++, Assembly, C

Well for starters, can you hack? Sorry, but you didn't provide much information.

You have to tailor each job interview to the respective company. Each company is different and will be looking for unique traits.

You mention alot of your programming skills, but do you have network and server skills? They are as essential.

One thing you might want to have a look at is this book. It may appear pretty lame, but I browsed though it and it covers a lot of things, and might help in your case.

Either way, good luck :)

One of the most important things is to research the company, tailor your strengths and experience to match what they are looking for, and be prepared to discuss specifics about the company. Look at their website, dig up some information, recent press releases, anything you can bring up to show you have done your homework.
