Today I was fired from my first cyber security job. I had worked for years getting ready for this job and working my way into the cyber security field. I spent thousands of dollars on courses, and gaining knowledge including OSCP, HTB, Tryhack me etc. I started in the technology workforce 4 years ago as a department lead for a software company. Then I moved to helpdesk, and finally to a job in cyber security. My role was to take over the pentesting for the company. While also working the SoC. The reason for being fired was “I had to much of an offensive red team mindset. When working my daily tasks and me wanting to do nmap scans and metasploit and use exploits was not the company’s way of doing things”. How do you hire someone for a pen-testing role and use that for the reasoning for letting me go. Can someone PLEASE make it make sense?
