    I skimmed through the presentation and it has great content. It’s stuff that should be universally known but for some reason a lot of people can’t figure out. I particularly liked the “are you willing to work on infosec knowledge building outside buisness hours” question. I see people hesitate with this all the time.

    I gave him +10 points for the My Little Pony resume example and then took away 15 points because he put zero effoert designing the rest of the slides.
