Had my first interview for a cyber security gig.

1st round, preliminary questions about ethics in a security related topic, etc.

I wrote a report about that topic, but for some reason brain fogged the answer.

At the end of the interview, I also blurted out that I found the interviewer's presentation at a past conference and really liked it.

Pretty sure they now think I'm a creep.

That being said, it's been a few years since I've interviewed, so it feels great to get the dust off, even if I bombed it

Practice makes perfect, right?!

    Don't get your head around it too much, if it wasnt meant to be, it wasnt meant. Anyways, practise makes perfect 🙂

    I don't think it's a bad thing to show that you've done research on the company....

    It could be worse. You could have dug up their email addresses and looked through password leaks to find their favourite reused password and blurted out “I found your password online and really liked Dragon;987pandemonium I can see why you used it so much.”
