Did CEH help you get a job?
I passed my CEH a few months ago and have begun to wonder how marketable it will be. Has the CEH helped anyone get a job? I am not actively looking, just curious if the work I put into it will help in the future. Working on my CISSP now.
As for holding weight on its own, I haven't seen any jobs in my area that specifically ask for it, but I'm sure as other have mentioned it would be a great accent to your CISSP when you get it.
I was waiting for my CISSP endorsement and have been offered a security analyst role so its helped me move into the field.
Are you referring to your CEH or CISSP?
As mentioned by spicy ahi, it's helpful if you're already DoD or considering it. Though if you get hired you have six months to acquire the certs, and they'll pay for it, so if you already have work experience it's a better deal to wait. Though it was nice onboarding and already having my baseline in hand.
Interesting. I came on as a contractor (Engility Corp) in November 2012, worked for two months, deployed to Afghanistan for 6 months, waited a year, then took and passed Sec+ in June 2014. I applied for and was granted a waiver for the 6 month deadline because I was in Afghanistan. I wonder if the policy has changed since then, because it was six months from onboarding for us as well.
I'm glad I waited since I switched to GS shortly after and do not have to renew until 2017. (Made moot by CEH/CISSP anyway).
