    Question HR Filter for OSCP??

    Now, I have B.E., B.S (2nd Bachelor), eCPPT, and OSCP. In addition, two years experience as an IT Professional and now a different field as HVAC in Military. However, I will back to IT field after finishing the service, but want to be back as a penetration tester.

    However, I don't know how OSCP influences to the HR filter since it is not infamous certification among Security Organizations such as ISC or Cisco officially because those organizations do not mention about OSCP.

    Do I have to get another certification for getting interested from HR?

    If yes, which certs would you recommend?

    Thanks,

    CEH usually gets you through HR.

    Big, dumb, corporatey HR like the CEH and may not recognize the OSCP. Smaller shops that recognize the OSCP is where you'd shine the most.

    It just depends on what you are applying for. For example, if you search Security+ you will get a lot more job opening than CEH, and CEH will get more than OSCP.

    I think OSCP and CEH should be enough to get your through the door in most places. The top Filter filler is CISSP ... everyone has that as a requirement these days

    If you spell out the acronyms you will get hits on OSCP. Usually somewhere in the job description there should be a reference to penetration testing. You add the same on your resume.

    Job postings are funny sometimes, I seen job postings that ask for Security+ or CISSP, but ignore GIAC certs when the job responsibilities would match great with those kinds of certs. Or pen-testing jobs that just list CISSP, truly bizarre, you would think any competent IT manager when know what certs to include on a security job posting.
    Still searching for the corner in a round room.

    For consulting jobs certain certificates might be required by the clients. CISSP and CEH are some of the most well-known certs for penetration testing, so if the clients only know those, you could have OSEE, they still wouldn't give a damn.
