Technical Recruiter

I recruit for all types of roles at Palo Alto Networks. The cybersecurity industry is constantly changing, so I look for adaptable, motivated, candidates with a self-starter mindset to join us on our mission of protecting our way of life in the digital age.

What advice would you give to a candidate preparing for an interview?

Do your research and rehearse! Read everything you can about the position you’re interviewing for and understand the challenges in such a role. Think back about your past experience to recall examples of when you’ve dealt with similar challenges, and what you did to overcome them. Then, rehearse! Practice saying your story outload to yourself, repeating it until you are happy with the answer.

How can someone be a more competitive candidate?

Come energized and show you’re motivated. In some cases, high motivation can compensate for lack of exact experience for a role. We are all human after all (!) and seeing a candidate with great passion will make the interviewer remember you and trust that where there is a will, there is a way.
